He was very good at listening to advice and using it but not creating his own. That ability to listen helped make him a very good commander so I'm not dismissing him but we can't call him a tactician.

Whereas we can certainly call the novel Zhou Yu a tactician which is my wider point.

Yeah you're right. He is a tactician in the novel but strategist in reality.

I would more go history Zhou Yu was a commander, musician and strategist+nice guy. Novel Zhou Yu was a commander, strategist, tactician and musician (as well as narrative device :wink: )
