  • This is a story that happened in the Three Kingdoms period. The night before the Battle of Chibi, Zhou Yu was thinking hard in his tent about how to defeat Cao Cao's army, when Huang Gai came in. He suggested attacking with fire. "That's what I was thinking," said Zhou Yu. Soon they figured out a good way to cheat enemy and beat them.
    The next day Zhou Yu got all his generals together and held a meeting. He asked the commanders to take three month's worth of food and prepare to defend the line. Huang Gai said, "We don't need three month's worth of food. We'd better throw down our weapons and ask for peace."
    Zhou Yu was angry. "I bear our lord's order to lead our troops to destroy Cao Cao!" he cried. "How dare you give up?"
    Zhou Yu ordered soldiers to kill Huang Gai. Huang Gai said proudly, "I have served the country under the rule of three kings. Who are you to tell me what to do?"
    All the generals pleaded with Zhou Yu not to kill Huang Gai. At last, Zhou Yu gave Huang Gai one hundred strokes on the back with a whip as punishment.
    After his punishment, Huang Gai let his friend Kan Ze send a letter of surrender to Cao Cao, pretending that he was going to surrender. Cao Cao believed what Huang Gai said. When he welcomed Huang Gai's boat, he set fire to Cao Cao's camp. Thus Cao Cao was defeated. 赤壁大战之前的一天晚上,周瑜正在苦苦思索如何破敌,老将黄盖来到帐中,认为用火攻好。周瑜说:“我也这样想。”于是两个人商量出了骗过敌人、打败他们的办法。第二天,周瑜把各路将传到军帐下议事,命大将们各领三个月粮草,准备抗敌。黄盖反对说:“不用三个月了。我们还是早点投降的好!"周瑜听后大怒:“我奉命督军破敌,你却敢说投降。”就叫人把黄盖斩了。黄盖骄傲地说:“我是东吴三世重臣,南征北伐时,你还不知在哪呢”!”在场的将领们都替黄盖求情。最后,周瑜罚他挨一百军棍。挨了打之后,黄盖就让好友阚泽投降书去曹操那里诈降。曹操相信了黄盖要投降。结果在他迎接黄盖的船队的时候,黄盖引火船冲入曹营,一起一场大火。于是曹操就被打败了。
