The Story of Zhao Yun
In 208, the Shu forces were unable to resist the Wei forces. Cao Cao personally led a 5,000-strong elite cavalry force to pursue Liu Bei. While Liu Bei abandoned his family and fled, Zhao Yun led the rearguard and protected Liu Bei's family.
In 219, Zhao Yun led tens of horsemen out of the camp to spy on information, he then encountered Wei's vanguard force and engaged them in battle until Wei's main force showed up and surrounded him. Left with no choice, Zhao Yun had to fight his way out and head back to camp. Upon seeing the enemy's approach, Zhao Yun ordered the gates to be opened and the war drums to be silenced so as to create an illusion of an empty camp. Wei's forces thought that there was an ambush so they withdrew. Just as they were retreating, Zhao Yun launched a counterattack. Wei's soldiers were shocked and thrown into disarray.
Zhao Yun is lauded as a member of the Five Tiger Generals, who possesses powerful combat skills, unwavering loyalty, tremendous courage, and keen intelligence.
