Kong Renkuai wrote:His campaign against the Mang can't be considered a great accomplishment and his northern campaigns where failures. He was short on supplies in his campaigns and he never corrected the error that was a major factor in his loses. No doubt, he is a political genius, but he is far from a great military strategist.

Lance wrote:No. ZGL was certainly NOT the greatest strategist. His strongest points are his abilities in civil administration. Though his campaign against the Nanman was succesful without any great cost, pacifying a bunch of disorganized barbarians isn't a great accomplishment. His Northern Campaigns weren't bad, he generally improved the supply dilemma each time and was able to do all the campaigns without any major losses....which could've been disatrous for the much smaller Shu army. Who was the best in my opinion? For a CIC, definately Lu Xun and for a strategist, I'd have to say Jia Xu...it was his plans that kept Zhang Xiu alive for so long, not that he doesn't deserve credit for recognizing Jia Xu's genius and effectively executing his plans....
