maybe, while cao cao said he would have avoided the fire attack at chi bi had only guo jia been alive
I thought Cao Cao meant he would have followed the plan laid out by Jia Xu so wouldn't have advanced to Chi Bi so quickly
Althought they are both equal in their advice, Sima Yi has an ambition to take over Wei
He did? I thought he served Wei very loyally, it is a pity his descandants wanted more power.
I think I prefer Sima Yi overall but they are two difffirent types. Jia is an advisor, Sima Yi is a politcal man and a commander, at least to me
Jia: An insightful man, I wouldn't call him more then a close advisor who sometimes suggested things. If you need a plan quick, Jia wasn't nesscirly the best option but he had Cao Cao's trust, a huge advantage over other perhaps more capable advisors.
Sima Yi: Loyal even though he had to be forced into service, his poor showing against Zhuge Liang is a blot on his milatry record but he did seem to learn from it and did beat other skilled generals. He also restored Wei to strength after the incapable rule of Cao Shuang was stopped.
