In the years 208–209, Cao Cao, head of the Han central government who laid the foundation for what was to become the state of Cao Wei in northern China, dispatched his fleet south of the Yangtze River with the aim of capturing lands. Despite the huge size of Cao Cao's army, very few of his soldiers had any experience in naval warfare. During the Battle of Red Cliffs, the combined forces of the Wu and Shu kingdoms, led by Sun Quan and Liu Bei, emerged victorious over Cao Cao's fleet.

Three Kingdoms
