Commentary

Near million Green Standard Army stationary in northern China defend UK and French troops increased the Jiangnan DaYing less strength and money pay salary to soldiers, it was the first and important loss reason;

The second reason of loss was leaders intrigue against each other:Xiang Rong(向榮) and Her Chyun in the first Jiangnan DaYing;Her Chyun‘group, He Guiqing‘group and Zeng Guofan‘group dispute inner officials system, that give many stronger growth to the forces of Taiping Rebellion.

Of course that Her Chyun was able to Brigadier General‘s works but he led whole Jiangnan DaYing and belittle the Taiping Rebellion, He Guiqing‘s coward,Zeng Guofan‘ too selfish etc. were third loss reason.
