Qiu Shaoyun was born in 1931 in Tongliang County, Sichuan Province. He joined the Chinese People's Liberation Army in December 1949 and in March 1951, joined the Chinese People's Volunteer Army (CPV) to fight in the War to Resist U.S. Aggression and Aid Korea. On the way to the front line with the troops, he braved the strafing and bombing of US military aircrafts and saved a Korean child from a burning house.


After the outbreak of the War to Resist US Aggression and Aid Korea, Wei Wei, a famous writer in China, went to the frontline several times for interviews and wrote 17 newsletters. Among them is the Days and Nights on the Southern Shores of Han River, which describes the arduous defense combats of Chinese People's Volunteers (CPV) on the south bank of the Han River.
