Also as early as August 2013, an Internet user surnamed Zhang in Guangzhou was detained for seven days for spreading rumors about five martyr soldiers jumping off a cliff to cover the retreat route of fellow troops in the War of Resistance against Japanese Aggression (1937-45).
In 2004, a college student alleged that a heroic deed of Chinese soldier Huang Jiguang was fabricated to encourage soldiers to maintain morale. In 1952, during the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, Huang blocked enemy fire with his chest to run down the enemy's ammunition and seize a strategically important place at the expense of his life.
