Zhou Chie wrote:What were his merits? Recently heard lots of remarks against Xiahou Dun, and yet he seemed like one of the most valued men Cao Cao had, which is causing a lot of confusion for me as I'm struggling to grasp whether he was an incompetent buffoon who's only fortune was the family he was born into, or was he a talented man? Further I can't seem to find much on Xiahou Dun, could someone pls help?

During his term of office there were sometimes drought and locust attacks. Dun blockaded the river and used the fertile riverbed for agricultural purposes. He led his men to join in the labor and he carried soil on his back like the peasants. The people benefited because of his leadership, and later Dun became the governor of He’nan.
