Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Cao Xing was a military general serving under the warlord L Bu during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. Little was documented about Cao Xing in historical records except for an incident described in Wang Can's Records of Heroes. Cao was a subordinate of Hao Meng, a general serving under L Bu. In 196, Hao rebelled against his lord but was defeated by Gao Shun. Cao led his men to pursue the retreating Hao and cut off Hao's arm in the skirmish, but he was also injured. Gao came to Cao's rescue and he slew Hao. After the rebellion was crushed, Cao told L Bu that Hao was instigated by Yuan Shu to rebel, and that Chen Gong was an accomplice. Cao added that he had tried to stop Hao, but Hao refused to listen to him. L Bu did not probe further into the case because Chen Gong was an important strategist to him. L Bu praised Cao and put him in command of Hao Meng's men.
