The Story of Jiang Ziya
In 1046 BC, the Zhou army, led by Wu of Zhou and Jiang Ziya, defeated the defending army of King Di Xin of Shang at Muye.
Zhou army of about 50,000 men charged towards the Shang army of about 530,000 men and 170,000 slaves. Jiang Ziya charged at the head of the troops, beat the battle drums, and then with 100 of his men drew the Shang troops to the southwest. King Wu's troops moved quickly and surrounded the capital. Di Xin had sent relatively untrained slaves to fight. This, plus the fact that many surrendered or revolted, enabled Zhou to take the capital. After the battle, Di Xin set fire to his palace and perished in it, and King Wu and his successors the Zhou dynasty established rule over all of China.
As the most notable Prime Minister employed by King Wen and King Wu, Jiang Ziya was declared “the master of strategy”.
