Just this one sentence shows that Liu Bei doesn’t trust or even appreciate Zhuge Liang’s talent
In Liu Bei’s almost final battle against Dong Wu, he did not bring along Zhuge Liang, the military man everyone thought was number one in Huyen Duc’s heart. It was not simply that Zhuge Liang attacked Dong Ngo, but the main reason was because Luu Bei did not believe in the talent of Khong Minh.
The twenty-fourth year of Jian’an (AD 219) was the year when Liu Bei reached the pinnacle of his life, because in this year Liu Bei defeated Cao Cao in a head-to-head battle for the first time and won the great victory in Hanzhong! However, this year is also the darkest year in Liu Bei’s life, because not long after the Hanzhong victory, Guan Yu was defeated and killed, completely losing the opportunity to unify the world…
Just when Liu Bei was about to invade Trung Nguyen and saw his hope of completely defeating Cao Cao, Sun Quan disillusioned Liu Bei by not only robbing Kinh Chau but also killing Guan Yu. This event made Liu Bei decided to flatten Jiang Dong to avenge his second brother. However, in the end, everyone knows that Luu Bei suffered a heavy defeat at the battle of Di Lang, the elite of the entire Shu army was almost wiped out. So why didn’t Liu Bei bring Zhuge Liang?
In the explanation of the Three Kingdoms, the reason why Liu Bei did not bring Zhuge Liang was simply because Khong Minh did not support fighting Dong Ngo. Also according to Tam Quoc Dien Nghia, Zhuge Liang’s tactic talent is described as being as talented as Guan Zhong and Yue Yi. Whenever he encounters a big enemy, Liu Bei listens to Zhuge Liang’s advice. However, this time the punishment of Dong Ngo was not.
In addition to the Three Kingdoms, in history there have been many answers to this, for example Zhuge Liang needed to sit in the rear to protect Shu Han and resist a possible invasion of Cao Wei in Phuong. North. But in essence, Liu Bei did not beat Wu with Zhuge Liang, just because he did not trust Zhuge Liang! Of course, this suspicion does not mean that Liu Bei does not believe in Zhuge Liang’s person, but Liu Bei does not trust Zhuge Liang’s military capabilities! We can see this from Zhuge Liang’s testimonials.
Immediately after the defeat at Di Lang, Zhuge Liang himself had to sigh and say:If Phap Hieu Truc was still alive, he could have prevented the Upper Lord from leading troops; Even if you can’t stop it, if you go with you, you will definitely be able to return after failure.”
In fact, Tam Quoc Chi did not specifically record Zhuge Liang’s opposition to Liu Bei’s attack on Dong Ngo. Because of the fact, capturing Kinh Chau has always been one of the important springboards in Zhuge Liang’s policy of Long Trung. From the beginning, Luong always advised Luu Bei to get Kinh Chau degree, but Bei missed one time and that was Khong Minh’s great regret. Therefore, opposing Luu Bei attacking Dong Ngo to reclaim Kinh Chau, according to Sohu, is like Luong “slapping” himself in the face.
According to Sohu, Phap Chinh is the number one military advisor under Luu Bei. In political history, although Zhuge Liang has an outstanding strategic talent, he is a man with a talent for strategy and is responsible for planning the general direction, not implementing tactics on the battlefield. The execution of tactics and tactical strategy both depended on Fa Chinh, the reason why Liu Bei was able to defeat Cao Cao in the battle of Han Trung was also because of Fa Chinh. Therefore, the fact that Bei did not bring Luong with him in the battle of Dong Ngo was probably because Hoang Thuc did not appreciate Khong Minh’s military talent. On the contrary, it would be much better for Zhuge to stay in Thuc.
