I find it somewhat amusing that the quarrel between Wang Hun and Wang Jun take up more space in the historical sources than the actual fall of Wu (or at least that's is the impression I get, haven't actually counted the characters)

Consider it this way: it's emblematic of the sort of infighting that would destroy Jin only a few years later. No sooner was unity in reach than the cracks started to show.

Funny how little was worth recording in history in 287, 288 (and 281 to some extent as well). I guess that's a good reflection on Sima Yan in that it appears to have been relatively peaceful. Calm before the storm?
I bought Imperial Warlord and the tome. Hardcovers are awesome.

Some years are quieter than others. 184 was big, 189 was even bigger, but 185-188 were relatively quiet.
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.

In memory of my beloved cats, Anastasia (9/30/06-9/18/17, illness) and Josephine (1/19/06-9/23/17, cancer).
