Xu Sheng

Xu Sheng


Xu Sheng (177-228) was a brave military general for the Kingdom of Wu during the Three Kingdoms era of China. He fought in several battles for Wu during his lifetime. He is often noted several times throughout his career for overcoming enemies who outnumbered him greatly, and with decisive victories.

Soon after Cao Pi declared himself emperor of the Kingdom of Wei, he mobilized a large force to attack Eastern Wu. As the commander in chief of the Wu forces, Xu Sheng constructed a fake wall along the banks of the river that served as a border, which stretched over 100 "li". Cao Pi, upon seeing the wall, immediately withdrew his forces. Xu Sheng died a while later in 228.
