Chapter 35 Ding Yuan lures the enemy

When these people arrived, they saw Lu Bu looking at a corpse in a daze. They thought that Lu Bu was depressed because he failed to catch Yu Fuluo. So they didn’t dare to speak. These people must be Lu Bu’s subordinates. Although Lu Bu usually doesn’t restrain them very much, this rule still has to be in place.

Although Gao Shun was not Lu Bu’s general, after seeing Lu Bu’s bravery, he naturally ranked his status behind Lu Bu. This has nothing to do with Lu Bu being Ding Yuan’s son. It was entirely Lu Bu’s strength that was recognized by Gao Shun.

Lu Bu looked up at the people who were looking at him, smiled sarcastically and said, “What are you looking at me for? Is there something wrong with my face?”

Looking at the people looking at him, Lu Bu said with some self-deprecation.

When everyone saw Lu Bu talking and laughing, they naturally laughed.

After laughing, Gao Shuncai clasped his fists and said to Lu Bu seriously: “To General Lu, the battlefield has been cleared. More than 2,000 people in our unit have died in the battle, and the remaining 2,000 people are ready to go and are ready for the general’s orders.”

As soon as Gao Shun reported the situation on the battlefield, Song Xian and Wei Xu immediately handed over their hands and said to Lu Bu: “My lord, the two of us have collected more than a thousand soldiers in the past few days, and they are all strong and healthy.” We can fight.”

Seeing that everyone else was reporting, Bu Dugen blinked his eyes, stepped forward with some embarrassment and cupped his hands and said: “Your distinguished master, I still have twenty-eight warriors under my command.”

As soon as they heard the numbers Bu Dugen said, all the generals couldn’t help but sneer at them. There are often thousands of people, and the worst ones bring hundreds of people. He, Bu Dugen, really can’t do anything with just these few people.

However, Lu Bu first patted Bu Dugen on the shoulder and said: “Brothers worked hard yesterday. Go back and tell the brothers that I, Lu Bu, gave them ten Huns slaves.”

When he heard that Lu Bu had given him ten slaves, Bu Dugen’s face suddenly became happy. But he didn’t leave. Of course Lu Bu understood that Bu Dugen was asking for reward. There’s no way foreigners are just so snobbish, and they can’t afford to be early without any benefit.

So Lu Bu smiled again and said to Bu Dugen: “Go and get a hundred slaves yourself.”

After hearing Lu Bu’s words, Bu Dugen finally smiled and went to find his troops to convey the good news.

Seeing Bu Dugen walking away, Gao Shun asked Lu Bu with a strange look on his face: “The general is just a few Xianbei people, why should the general be so polite to them?”

Lu Bu listened to Gao Shun’s words and said indifferently: “It’s just a small benefit, no big deal. Besides, they helped me when I needed it most. Humanity should never forget its roots.”

After hearing Lu Bu’s words, the generals looked at Lu Bu even more eagerly.

It was only then that Lu Bu turned around and asked Gao Shun: “How many prisoners were captured this time?”

After Gao Shun thought for a while, he said: “Originally, there were three thousand prisoners captured. But now there are only more than a thousand.”

After hearing what Gao Shun said, Lu Bu opened his eyes wide in shock and asked Gao Shun: “How could this happen?”

Gao Shun grinned and said, “Isn’t this normal, General Lu? In wars, fewer people are killed and more injured. Now the injured soldiers in our army lack medical treatment and have no way to treat them. Feel free to treat them as you like. For prisoners, we can only keep those with minor injuries and deal with those with serious injuries, so that’s how it is.”

Only then did Lu Bu truly understand what war is and what cruelty is. If killing on the battlefield is a last resort killing, then what is the purpose of killing, or even killing more people, after the war?

Thinking of this, Lu Bu simply said something.

“The battle over at Wuyuan City is about to begin. Everyone, prepare yourself and rush over immediately.”

But he said that when Ding Yuan led his troops to Wuyuan City, he was worried about how to surround Wuyuan City.

There is a saying in the art of war: attack the enemy when it is doubled, and surround it when it is ten times larger. That is to say: You must have ten times the enemy’s army before you dare to surround the enemy’s city. Now Ding Yuan has another 20,000 troops, although the number is several thousand more than that of Naxubuguduhou Chanyu. But if he had to use 20,000 troops to surround the city garrisoned by 12,000 troops, Ding Yuan still felt nervous for himself.

Ding Yuan was thinking hard about how to arrange his troops, but a soldier came up to report: “Sir, the Huns have left the city and are heading towards our army’s formation.”

Upon hearing this, the Huns actually left the fortified city on their own initiative. Ding Yuan was happy for a while, but soon his face became gloomy again. He said secretly: “It seems that the Huns are going to fight with me in the field. If it’s good, we will fight in the field. Is it possible that I, Ding Yuan, am afraid that I will not be satisfied with this?”

Thinking of this, Ding Yuan ordered: “Instruct the three armies to form formations to meet the enemy.”

Outside the north gate of Wuyuan City, on the vast plain. The Han army and the Huns formed square formations and faced each other.

Ding Yuan organized his 20,000 soldiers and horses into three phalanxes, with a cavalry phalanx of 5,000 men on the two wings and an infantry phalanx of 10,000 men in the middle. Ding Yuan’s Chinese army was just behind the infantry phalanx.

Ding Yuan’s intention in setting up the formation in this way was very simple: he wanted to attract the enemy to attack from the front. Use your own archers hidden in the infantry phalanx to consume a large number of Hun cavalry.

Compared with the neat formation of the Han army, the Huns’ formation was a bit nondescript. It is said to be a formation, but it is actually a column with its respective leader as the core.

Shanyu, the Xubu Guduhou of the Xiongnu, came to the battlefield surrounded by the generals. He looked at the formation laid out by Ding Yuan and laughed and said: “This Ding Yuan really has a false reputation. He thinks he arranges the soldiers like this.” Are you going to prepare your troops? Let’s see how I take his life.”

Saying this, Xubu Guduhou Chanyu divided his 12,000 Huns cavalry into three teams, with 3,500 men in each team, and attacked the Han army’s two wings and infantry phalanx respectively.

Shanyu, Lord Xubu Gudu, brought the remaining 1,500 Xiongnu elite cavalry with him. Mixed in with the troops attacking the infantry phalanx, the driver attacked Ding Yuan’s Chinese army.

After everything was ready, Xubu Guduhou Shanyu waved to the back, and a dark-skinned man came to Xubu Guduhou Shanyu.

This man raised his hand to Shan Yuyi, Lord Xubugudu, and said with a smile: “Chanyu, do you want me to go out and kill all these Han people?”

Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubugudu, also laughed and said: “Tengger, lead your men to rush over from the left and defeat the Han army’s left wing.”

“Yes.” Tengger responded, got up and mounted, and raised the sword in his hand. He said loudly: “Brothers, come with me to get the heads of Han dogs.”

After speaking, Tengger rushed out immediately. Behind Tengger, 3,500 Huns cavalry rolled like hesitant waves, and rushed towards the Han army in waves.

Seeing the Huns’ left wing rushing over. Ding Yuan couldn’t sit still anymore, and stretched out his hand to wave in the air. He saw the flag fluttering, but the cavalry on the left flank of the Han army did not go forward, but quietly retreated. At the same time, the infantry phalanx in the middle changed. From the infantry phalanx in the middle, groups of shield soldiers and archers appeared occasionally, occupying the positions where the cavalry had retreated.

The Han army has just completed its formation change. The Huns rushed over over there.

When there was still room for an arrow between the two armies, the Han army’s archers launched the attack first. The Han army had just fired a shower of arrows, and the Huns’ arrows had to fly into the sky. Fortunately, every archer in the Han army has a shield soldier beside him, which can help the archers resist the incoming arrows.

Just when the archers on the Han army began to fire arrows at the charging Hun cavalry. Standing in front of the Huns’ formation, Xubu Guduhou Shanyu showed a smile. This smile was evil, but also very proud.

Following this smile, Xubu Guduhou Shanyu shouted loudly: “The army will charge with me.”

At the same time, Xubu Guduhou Shanyu picked up the reins of his horse and rushed over first.

It turns out that the reason why Xubu Guduhou Shanyu asked Tengger to attack first was because he wanted to test Ding Yuan’s depth. But what Xubu Guduhou Shanyu didn’t expect was that Ding Yuan was so incompetent.

Hiding bows and arrows among the infantry was not a secret, and Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubu Gudu, had already thought of it. But what Xubu Guduhou Shanyu didn’t expect was that Ding Yuan actually showed his trump card so early.

If the Han army’s infantry phalanx was protected by archers, Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubu Gudu, would naturally be worried. Archers must be very lethal to cavalry. But now the Han army has withdrawn its archers. So the Han infantry placed in front of the Chinese army are not the dishes on his plate, Shanyu, the Marquis of Xubu Gudu.
