Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jiang Gan was an advisor to the warlord Cao Cao during the late Han Dynasty period of Chinese history. In Luo Guanzhong's historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms, Jiang Gan was a former schoolmate of Zhou Yu, the famous military commander of Eastern Wu. Later, Jiang Gan served Cao Cao as a minor civilian official. Prior to the Battle of Red Cliffs, Cao Cao's troops and the Eastern Wu troops had a naval battle in which the outnumbered Wu troops defeated Cao Cao's troops. Cao Cao was furious with the defeat and after discussion with his generals, he realised that most of his troops came from Northern China and were not familiar with naval warfare. Cao Cao ordered Cai Mao and Zhang Yun, who both formerly served Liu Biao of Jingzhou, to construct a naval base for training the troops in naval warfare.
