Hock G. Tjoa's translation of 'Romance of the Three Kingdoms' gives us the unique opportunity to gaze into China's distant and often violent past.
This exert, chapter 15, set in 208 AD, is a short story in itself that Illustrates the brilliance of a strategist called Zhuge Llang. By cunning alone he cheats a hundred thousand arrows from the mighty enemy, then skilfully devises a plan of action to defeat its massive army.
Without knowing for sure, I guess this translation is written pretty much word for word, which adds charm and authenticity to this fascinating tale.
Mr. Tjoa is releasing this ebook for free, so there's no reason to hesitate, download it now and see if you find it equally fascinating.
