The literal translation of the title of this movie is: the Bloody battle at the Village of Tai-Er.
This war movie, like most Chinese war movies, are based on the true story that really happened in real life. What makes this movie unique is that unlike previous denial or willful ignoring, for the first time in the history of post-revolutionary era Chinese film industry, the contributions of the nationalists, the enemy of communists, were accurately acknowledged by the Chinese governments. Everything in the movie was as realistic as possible, the real names of the generals, commanders were used, all the way down to the battalion level, and all the places had their original names. Taiwan purchased the copyright of this movie.
