He is famous for his fickleness and lack of justice. Within the Kuomintang, he had little popularity and disobeyed command. Many people wanted to kill him. Because of this, he was determined to join in, and Chiang Kai Shek liked to use such a person for only one reason, obedience. In 1949, Chen Yi, his mentor and chairman of the Kuomintang in Zhejiang Province, instigated Tang uprising, but was betrayed by him and executed in Taiwan by Chiang Kai Shek. Not only that, but he is also ruthless to his relatives. According to ge Tian, one of his subordinates
I remember that in 1942, Tang Enbo went to Chongqing to see Chiang Kai Shek and lived at No. 12, Yongxing lane, shibati (that is, Chongqing Office of the headquarters of the 31st group army). At this time, his younger brother Tang Kegong, who works in Chongqing No. 21 Arsenal, and his son Tang Jianyuan, who studies in Chongqing, came to see him in the office. It was human nature. Unexpectedly, when he saw his son and younger brother, he scolded and scolded them. It was useless to ask them never to meet him. He told me face to face that I was not allowed to give them money. If he did, I would be responsible for it. At that time, not only did the two of them not understand the reason, but the people present were baffled. Later, someone said to me: he didn't like this son because he was born by his abandoned wife; he didn't like this brother because he was a half brother.
Zhang Wenxin, one of Tang's classmates in Japan, said that he was "like a Bodhisattva in the face and a real killer in the nature". He thought that the man who led the troops could not be merciful. Most of the people he used were those who were cruel. He often killed innocent people to get credit. According to Li Youwu, one of his subordinates
In 1932, Tang Enbo served as the commander of the 89th division and led the Ministry to participate in the fourth "encirclement and suppression" of the revolutionary base areas of Hubei, Henan and Anhui Every time I come to a village, I drive all the men, women, children and old people to the open space beside the village, then I ransack all the belongings and burn all the villages The division headquarters will select men over 15 and under 60 to kill them. The rest of the elderly, children and children are escorted to Hankou by armed soldiers. It is stipulated that the journey is 60 miles a day. Many old and weak people who can't walk are stabbed to death on the way
Tongenbo's method of killing the people is even worse. He ordered the engineer battalion to kill the men over 15 and under 60 who were sent by the regiments, battalions and companies. They started shooting with guns, and then killed their heads with broadswords Finally, he ordered the soldiers of the engineering camp to form a circle and install bayonets to drive the slaughtered people into the circle one by one. The squad leader issued a command to call "kill". The soldiers used bayonets to stab them up and shouted "kill" together until they were stabbed to death. "This saves ammunition and allows soldiers to practice white-edged combat," Tang said
In order to establish his absolute authority in the army, Tang Enbo has always firmly controlled the personnel rights, economic rights and killing rights of the whole army. He once said to his subordinate Ge Tian, "if you have these rights, others will listen to you. If you don't have these rights, no one will listen to you." Having mastered the power of life and death of his subordinates, Tang Enbo's arbitrary "realm" is almost to the "realm". According to Li Youwu
Tongenbo's punishment of subordinates is completely arbitrary, neither reporting nor publishing. If someone disagrees with him, he will be dismissed when he is happy, killed when he is not happy, and sometimes shot himself.
In 1930, he was appointed as the first brigade chief of the second teaching division and participated in Henan Province. When the army passed an orchard, a soldier picked some plums to eat. When he was seen by Tony, he jumped off his horse, pulled out his pistol and shot the soldier.
Ge Tian also recalled that in 1939, Tang Enbo wanted to execute several officers of the Deputy General Office of the 31st army group because they played mahjong. At that time, it was very common for the army to play cards, and the day of execution was Tony's birthday. Ge Tian suggested that the execution be suspended. But Tang said, "I haven't killed people for a long time, so I'm not happy." As a result, the officers were executed that day. In the spring of 1940, because the soldiers under the head of one of his regiments were handed over some guns by the people of Henan Province when he received the young man, he thought the head was useless and lost the face of the army, so he ordered the secret service battalion to execute him.
Tony seems to be very strict in running the army, but in fact he is not. When Tang Enbo was stationed in Henan, there was a popular saying that there were four pests in Henan: water, drought, locust and soup. Zhang Wenxin said: "when people mention Tang Jun, they all turn pale and hate it to the bone." In 1944, when Tang Enberg's troops were passive in Anti Japanese War and scattered and fled in disorder, they were in a situation of being surrounded by enemies. Eighty nine division was attacked by angry local farmers. In his memoirs, he also castigated the downfall of military discipline in the Department of tannberg.
