Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gu Li was a military general serving under the warlord Sun Quan during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. He was involved in the Battle of Xiaoyao Ford in 217 against Cao Cao's forces. Initially an attendant under Sun Quan, Gu was promoted to personal bodyguard by Sun for his attentive and forthright personality. As Gu was loyal, daring, and direct in speech, he was even more trusted and regarded as a close aide by Sun. In 215, when Sun Quan learnt that Cao Cao was attacking Zhang Lu in Hanzhong, he led his army to attack Cao's castle at Hefei, initiating the Battle of Xiaoyao Ford. Gu followed Sun into battle. They faced strong resistance from Zhang Liao, Cao Cao's defending general at Hefei. Sun's forces were unable to conquer Hefei even though they were superior in numbers, and decided to retreat after surrounding the castle for several days. Zhang used the opportunity to launch a counterattack, taking Sun's retreating army by surprise at Xiaoyao Ford.show more
