1958年8月23日至10月5日間,台灣海峽上的小島金門,發生一場震撼海內外的823炮戰,國共雙方以隔海炮擊為主要戰術,因此被稱為炮戰。開戰原因眾說紛紜,有稱中華人民共和國發動炮擊是為了攻取金門,亦有人認為毛澤東發動炮戰是為阻止蘇聯和西方國家和解。823炮戰,是兩岸最後一場大型戰役,這一仗,不但確立了兩岸分隔的情勢,也讓蔣介石徹底認清,美國絕不可能幫他反攻大陸的事實。這場戰役,還暗藏許多兩岸和國際間的戰略角力。鳳凰衛視親赴金門和澎湖等外島拍攝戰地史蹟,並透過專訪多位親歷戰役的國府陸海空軍將領,以及專研國際情勢和兩岸戰略佈局的學者,還原這場歷史戰爭的原貌。



Between 23rd August and 5th October 1958, there were a series of bombs took place over Kinmen, which is a small archipelago of several islands administered by the Kuomintang in the Taiwan Strait. During the war, the Artillery Bombardment was mainly used. The reasons for declaring this war varied. Some said the Communist Party shelled the islands in an attempt to seize them from Taiwan. Some believed it was a gesture by Mao Zedong to discourage the truce between the Soviet Union and the Western counterparts.



The 823 Artillery Bombardment was the last large-scale war event taking place between the Communist Party and the Kuomintang. This war marked clear boundary between two places and made Chiang Kai-shek realizing that the Unites States would not help him to fight against the Communist Party.
