If Zhou could live longer, surely the Wu kingdom would have conquered all of China... 8-)

Welcome to the forum danuracula (nice name as well)

I don't think we can be sure that a live Zhou Yu pulls of the two kingdom plan, let alone unites the land. It had taken him a long time to beat Cao Ren and there were certain risks with his plan, it could have failed or taken too long.

Yeah maybe..
But i think Wu would be better because they have Zhou Yu, Lu Meng, & Lu Xun at the same time. Yu for campaign against Wei, Meng for campaign against Shu, and Xun for the defense. Still, just my prediction.. :lol:

Having Zhou Yu surviving longer would have helped Wu when they didn't have a natural successor as Cic, his death did force Wu to change tactics and perhaps would have been a better platform when it was Lu Meng's time to take over.
