Yue Fei, a famous general in the Southern Song Dynasty who fought against the Jin Dynasty, had many good generals. Yang Zaixing was one of them. He was very good at martial arts. However, he was outnumbered in a battle. Some people later said that he was a descendant of the Yang family general. Is this statement reliable? Is there any data to prove it?

There are few introductions to Yang Zaixing’s deeds in history. In Yang Zaixing’s introduction, it is introduced that Yang Zaixing was a famous general who fought against the Jin army in the Southern Song Dynasty. He was originally a subordinate of Cao Cheng. Later, he was subdued by Yue Fei during many battles with him. Yang Zaixing mentioned in his introduction that after he returned to serve Yue Fei, he had been following Yue Fei everywhere to fight against the invasion of the Jin army.

Yang Zaixing’s profile elaborated on his relationship with Yue Fei. Originally, he was a subordinate of Cao Cheng. Yue Fei sends Zhang Xian, a subordinate of Yue Fei, to attack moye pass. Guo Jin, a general under Zhang Xian, successfully breaks through the enemy line. Hanshunfu, a subordinate of Yue Fei, saw that Cao Chengjun’s troops had been scattered, so he relaxed and drank to cheer him up.

Yangzaixing took advantage of hanshunfu’s relaxed vigilance to drink and have fun, so he reorganized his army and rushed into hanshunfu’s camp, cutting off one of hanshunfu’s arms. Hanshunfu died because of his severe injury.

After Yue Fei’s defeat, he sent Wang Jing to attack Yang Zaixing. Yang Zaixing killed Yue fan in the battle with Wang Jing. Yue fan was Yue Fei’s younger brother. Yue Fei knew that his younger brother was very distressed after his death, but he felt that Yang Zaixing was indeed a rare talent. Therefore, when Yang Zaixing was captured at Yue Fei’s place, Yue Fei saw his great general demeanor. Instead of killing him, he surrendered him to the country.

Yangzaixing died in Shaoxing for ten years. At that time, the Jin army attacked the territory of the Song Dynasty. Yue Fei sent yangzaixing to fight against Jin army in Caozhou. After defeating Jin army, Jin army sent 200000 troops to attack Yicheng. Yangzaixing was defeated by the Jin army in the small commercial bridge.

He was brave and good at fighting. He was really a rare talent at that time. So how did such a powerful Yang Zaixing die?

Although the birth year of yangzaixing can not be found in very detailed historical records, he first appeared on the stage of history in 1131 and became the right-hand man of the bandit Cao Cheng. Nine years later, he died in Xiaoshang river. It can be inferred that he died young. During his nine-year campaign, he brushed his shoulders with death many times: in 1132, he killed general hanshunfu and killed Yue fan, Yue Fei’s younger brother, while retreating, which made the Yue family army very resentful. Later, when the Yue family army caught him, Yue Fei ignored the past grievances and took him as his subordinate. Yangzaixing survived the disaster, so he returned to the Yue family army. On another occasion, he broke into the Jin army array alone and wanted to capture its general Jin Wushu alive. Although the plan failed, it was recorded that he killed hundreds of Jin soldiers and survived. This shows his strength and courage. How did yangzaixing die? How did such a brave man die in battle?

He and his subordinates fought hard to break through the encirclement and killed nearly 2000 enemy troops. Eventually, he was outnumbered and the whole army was destroyed.
