At the time, there are only a few hundred troops under the command and even if they get the newly recruited soldiers, they were only full of thousands. Cao Ren ordered six thousand people to surround him, Gan Ning was attacked for several days in a row. The enemy forces set up a high-rise building, the arrow was shot into the city like a rain and generals were afraid, but Gan Ning made such a terrible laugh. One sent someone to report the situation to Zhou Yu, but Zhou Yu adopted Lu Meng's plan and led the way. Cao Ren's losses were more than half and fled overnight, he was intercepted on the way and lost more than 300 horses.

Zhou Yu pursued the victory and prepared to make a decision with Cao Cao's army, Cao Ren did not dare to fight again and the whole army decided to withdraw. Sun Quan's 70,000 confrontation made Gan Ning the leader of the 3,000 troops and was ordered to face the Wei army before the camp. However, Sun Quan take a book to Gan Ning and let him attack the Wei forces in the night, in fact, Gan Ning only had more than a hundred heroic warriors. Seemingly the aims in the ahead, Sun Quan and Gan Ning mandatory as eats even all the healthy foods, which is a less of the meats so they now give to their armies. At the hygiene, Gan Ning was determined to pour two glasses of wine and let the governor drink it on. However, the government was so getting rid of the unneed to blunt by degrees.
