I did a search but couldnt find anything meaningful but : Why oh why did Kongming not accompany Liu Bei on his invasion of the Southland? I mean, they had plenty of advisors who could have held the fort, why not send their best on the largest miliatary action they had ever undertaken?
Zhilong wrote:ZL may have been useful in the military organization of the army and perhaps would have urged his lord to retreat when there was no opportunity. I don't the would have changed it into a Shu victory but could have prevented such a ruinous defeat.
But on balance (without knowing the outcome of Yiling) i think ZL was needed back in Shu so that his home is secure.
It is nothing more serious than avenge for his sworn brother for Liu Bei, so even other officials advice him to stop he wont listen.
