The Story of Jiang Ziya
In 1046 BC, Wu of Zhou and his strategist Jiang Ziya led a 50,000-strong Zhou army to an unlikely victory over King Di Xin of Shang's much larger force, comprising 530,000 soldiers and 170,000 slaves, at the Battle of Muye. Jiang Ziya spearheaded the attack, drawing Shang troops to the southwest with only 100 men, while King Wu swiftly encircled the capital. Di Xin's reliance on untrained slaves and widespread defections among his ranks led to Zhou's capture of the capital. Following the defeat, Di Xin perished in a fire he set in his palace. This marked the beginning of the Zhou dynasty's reign over China, with King Wu and his successors at the helm. Jiang Ziya, serving as the prime minister to both King Wen and King Wu, earned the title “master of strategy” for his pivotal role in this historic conquest.
