They came to prominence during the Cultural Revolution (1966–76) and were later charged with a series of treasonous crimes. The gang's leading figure was Mao Zedong's last wife Jiang Qing. The other members were Zhang Chunqiao, Yao Wenyuan, and Wang Hongwen. The Gang of Four, together with disgraced general Lin Biao, were officially blamed by the Chinese government for the worst excesses of the societal chaos that ensued during the ten years of turmoil. Their downfall on October 6, 1976, a mere month after Mao's death, brought about major celebrations on the streets of Beijing and marked the end of a turbulent political era in China. On January 25, 1981, the Gang of Four and their subordinates were sentenced. Jiang Qing and Zhang Chunqiao received death sentences that were later commuted to life imprisonment, while Wang Hongwen and Yao Wenyuan were given life and twenty years in prison, respectively. Supporters of the Gang of Four, including Chen Boda and Mao Yuanxin, were also sentenced.

X Force was the name given to the Chinese Expeditionary Force that retreated from Burma into India in 1942 during WWII. These troops were originally sent into Burma from Yunnan by Chiang Kai-shek in 1942 to assist the British in holding back the Japanese. These Chinese forces became broken up, while most retreated back to China, two divisions retreated to India where they were placed under the command of the American General Joseph Stilwell. These forces were re-equipped and re-trained by American instructors at British expense. They were named X Force and used by General Joseph Stilwell as the spearhead of his drive to open a land route to China (the Ledo Road). The outstanding Chinese commander in X Force was General Sun Li-Jen, who led the Chinese 38th Division and was praised by the British Fourteenth Army Commander General (later Field Marshal) William Slim in his book Defeat into Victory. In August 1943 during the First Quebec Conference, the Allies decided to lunch attach to the Japanese forces in Burma. The X force launched its attack on the Japanese from the India side in October. In May 1944, a new Chinese force, known as the Y Force, entered Burma from Yunnan and launched attack on the Japanese from the northeast front. On January 27, 1945, the two sides joined forces in Muse, Burma, and took complete control of the Burma Road / Ledo Road. The first trucks reached the Chinese frontier by this route on January 28, 1945.

Yang was a member of the Amis, one of the fourteen officially recognized peoples of Taiwanese aborigines. He attended UCLA where he trained and competed with teammate and Olympian Rafer Johnson. Known as the "Iron Man of Asia," Yang won the gold medal in the decathlon at the 1954 and 1958 Asian Games. He went on to win the silver medal at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. In 1963 Yang finally took the Decathlon World Record from his friend Johnson at the Mt. SAC Relays. He was the first man to break the 9,000 barrier under the old scale. When the new tables were re-evaluated, this same score was the first to break 8,000 points under the new system. Yang, who contracted liver cancer in 2001 while he was the president of the National Sports Training Center at Kaohsiung, Taiwan, died on January 27, 2007, due to a massive stroke. He is buried in Ivy Lawn Memorial Park in Ventura, California.
