This chapter traces the history of the founding of the Lixingshe. It explains that it was during February and March 1932 that Lixingshe was transformed from a plan on paper into a top-secret organization of three hundred devoted Chiang Kai-shek loyalists. The formation of Lixingshe began Chiang's Lingyuan Villa meetings with three principal leaders of the preparations department for protecting the party and saving the nation, Kang Ze, Teng Jie, and He Zhonghan. This chapter also discusses the conflict between the works of Lixingshe and Dai Li's secret service.
