Summary In 208 A.D., in the final days of the Han Dynasty, Prime Minster Cao Cao convinced the Emperor of Han the only way to unite all of China was to declare war on the kingdoms of Shu in the west and East Wu in the south. Thus began a military campaign of unprecedented scale, led by the Prime Minister, himself. Left with no other hope for survival, the kingdoms of Shu and East Wu formed an unlikely alliance.
