Originally called Lei Zhengxing, the former People's Liberation Army soldier was born on Dec 18, 1940, to a farming family in Wangcheng, Central China's Hunan province.

He was killed in 1962, while directing a truck as it backed up. A pole struck him on the head. Lei had a habit of keeping a diary to detail his deeds and experiences, which was published after his death and became one of the bestsellers of the time.
