Battle of Jingzing, 205 BC
The battle of Jingzing (205) BC was one of a number of unusual victories won by Han Xin, one of the most able supporters of Liu Bang, the founder the Han Dynasty (Chu-Han Contention).
In the aftermath of his defeat at Pengchang (205 BC) Liu Bang found a number of his supporters changed their minds. Chen Yu, premier of Zhao (and king of Dai), was one of them. Han Xin, having subdued Wei, asked for and was granted permission to move against Zhao. As the Han army advanced Chen Yu moved his force of around 200,000 men into a strong position in the Jingxing Pass.
Han Xin decided to try and lure the Zhao army out of this position. A party of 2,000 men were sent into the mountains to find a position that overlooked the Zhao army. Han Xin then led 10,000 troops into the gorge while the rest of his army took up a position with the Jinman River to their rear. Chen Yu was unable to resist this tempting target, and ordered his men out of their camp.
Han Xin allowed the battle to go on for a convincing length of time, and then ordered his men to make a feigned retreat, abandoning their banners and drums. The Zhao troops left to guard the camp fell for this trick, and joined in the pursuit, leaving the camp empty. The 2,000 men in the mountains took their chance to occupy the camp and replace the Zhao flags with red Han flags.
Meanwhile Han Xin had retreated back to the main part of the army, and a fierce battle developed close to the river. With no way to retreat the Han troops resisted until the Zhao commanders gave up and decided to retire back to their camps. When they saw the enemy flags flying over the camp, many in the army assumed that King Zhao Xie or Chen Yu had been killed or captured and began to desert. At this point the Han attacked from the front and rear, inflicting a heavy defeat on the disorganised Zhao army. Chen Yu was killed in the battle, while Zhao Xie was captured. He was replaced as king of Zhao by Zhang Er, one of Liu Bang’s supporters.
Qin's wars of unification
Qin's wars of unification were a series of military campaigns conducted in the late 3rd century BC by the Qin state against the other six major states (Han, Zhao, Yan, Wei, Chu, Qi) in the territories that later became China. By the end of the wars in 221 BC, Qin had unified most of these states and also conquered some lands south of the Yangtze River. The territories annexed by the Qin became the homeland of the Chinese nation and formed the basis of the Qin Dynasty.

I think it's fine, and Kudos for adding Vermina's defeat too.
Scipio's defeat, it can be argued either way imo. He did end up withdrawing at 1st Utica, but that was before any major engagement.
And I totally agree that Utica was only a "defeat" in a very technical sense.

' Kuai Che, speaking to Han Xin in reference to the Wei, Dai and Zhao campaigns, from the Biography of Han Xin: 'You have fought tenaciously for more than a year and have taken about fifty cities so far.' Kuai Che does not mean that Han Xin conducted 50 different seiges, but since the Wei campaign was September 205, Dai was October and Jingxing was November, the statement implies that Han Xin continued to campaign in Zhao and had to campaign there for much longer than he did in Dai and Wei. The fact that he wouldn't invade Qi until October 204 implies similar.)

China’s supply chain threat to U.S. national security
Posted On May 04, 2020 21:05:14
“You can’t get a product. You are not going to get a product for months.” That’s what Brian Edwards, a medical supplier in California, has been telling dozens of people per day when they call searching for critical medical supplies that, before this year, they took for granted would be in stock.
The Chinese government’s mismanagement of the novel coronavirus not only spread the virus worldwide, it shut down many supply chains that the U.S. and other countries had become accustomed to indeed, that the U.S. deeply relied upon. As we consider how our post-pandemic country will look, we should be careful to avoid a repeat of these mistakes.
U.S. dependence on Chinese manufacturing was no accident. The Chinese government’s “Made in China 2025” strategy to consolidate manufacturing supply chains and impose itself as the world’s preeminent source of high-value manufactured goods has been well-known for years. While we have neglected to safeguard our industrial base, Beijing was aggressively subsidizing its country’s manufacturing plants and creating supply chains that maximized its economic and geopolitical leverage.
Some of my colleagues and I have worked the White House and the Department of Defense in the last two years to restrict purchases of Chinese-manufactured critical materials for use in U.S. military systems, and the Federal Communications Commission and other agencies have taken the first steps to stop Huawei and related entities from dominating next-generation communications hardware. But the COVID-19 crisis demonstrates that a broader approach is needed.
The U.S. government should develop better, near-real-time insight into supply chains. Occasional reviews of individual supply chains create blind spots that major crises will reach unexpectedly. With the tools that are out there, it should be easier than ever for the government and its critical suppliers to share data to provide resiliency and security.
The government also needs to take the lead in maintaining and expanding critical American supply capabilities. It will be crucial to prevent the pennies-on-the-dollar purchase of distressed American assets during or immediately after the pandemic by firms linked to the Chinese government. This includes many major Chinese firms (such as Huawei). The country that knowingly took steps that allowed the disease to spread worldwide should not be allowed to financially benefit from those decisions.
At the same time, the government should ensure that American businesses get the liquidity and capital they need to maintain and expand critical supply chains within the United States. This can be done through direct investment into manufacturing plants, but it could also be done by making purchase agreements and building national stockpiles of needed supplies. The much-discussed Defense Production Act allows the federal government to both expand and ensure manufacturing capabilities, and the billion that Congress provided to the DPA program in the CARES Act should be promptly supplemented with the direction that the government identify gaps and fragile sectors of supply chains and build capacity to bulwark them against future crises.
Though the current focus is, deservedly, on China, we should not think that there are no other foreign countries that seek to identify, develop, and exploit critical gaps in U.S. supply chains. Russia has always been a leader in the production of critical defense materials and a known bad actor on the global stage. Indian companies are routinely cited by U.S. authorities for dumping materials in critical and noncritical sectors of the economy. As we have seen recently with everything from thermometers to toilet paper, though, the supply chains that we rely on for our normal lives can be stressed in any number of ways.
A strong national approach to securing our manufacturing base is a necessary step for security and prosperity. The federal government is the only entity both large enough and focused enough to lead this effort. Congress should, therefore, act quickly, as soon as the next stimulus bill, to establish a supply chain monitoring and investment framework that will get America back to work and provide for a cohesive and united future.

Zang was originally a military general serving under Han Guang, king of Yan. Around 207 BC, when rebellions broke out all over China to overthrow the qin dynasty, Zang was sent to lead an army to assist the Zhao rebel forces, which were under attack by the Qin army led by Zhang Han. Following the defeat of Qin forces at the Battle of Julu, Zang joined the coalition rebel army under the command of Xiang Yu of Chu, and followed Xiang as they fought their way to Xianyang, capital city of Qin.
In 206 BC, after the fall of the qin dynasty, Xiang Yu divided the former Qin Empire into the Eighteen Kingdoms and appointed Zang as King of Yan. Part of the former Yan kingdom was granted to Han Guang, who was appointed by Xiang as King of Liaodong. Zang returned to Yan and attempted to force Han to move to his allocated fief, but the latter refused to comply. As a result, Zang attacked Han and killed him at Wuzhong, thereby becoming king of a united Yan kingdom.
In 204 BC, after his victory against Zhao at the Battle of Jingxing, Han Xin followed Li Zuojun's advice and sent a messenger to Zang, asking Zang to submit to Liu Bang. Zang agreed. In 202 BC, Liu defeated Xiang Yu and unified China under his rule, proclaiming himself Emperor Gaozu of the han dynasty. Zang became a vassal of Gaozu and retained his fief and title of King of Yan. Later that year, Zang rebelled against Gaozu, invading and capturing territory in Dai. Gaozu personally led an army to suppress the rebellion. Zang was defeated in battle and captured. He refused to surrender and was executed on Gaozu's orders.

End of the war
In 203 BC, while Xiang Yu was retreating eastward, Liu Bang, acting on the advice of Zhang Liang and Chen Ping, renounced the Treaty of Hong Canal and ordered an attack on Western Chu. He also requested assistance from Han Xin and Peng Yue to attack Xiang Yu simultaneously from three directions. However, Han Xin and Peng Yue did not mobilise their troops and Liu Bang was defeated by Xiang Yu at Guling (固陵 south of present-day Taikang County, Zhoukou, Henan). Liu Bang retreated and reinforced his defences. At the same time, he sent messengers to meet Han Xin and Peng Yue again, and promised to give them land and titles if they joined him in attacking Xiang Yu.
Battle of Gaixia
Three months later, in 202 BC, Han forces led by Liu Bang, Han Xin and Peng Yue attacked Western Chu from three directions. The Chu army was running low on supplies and Xiang Yu was trapped in Gaixia (垓下 southeast of present-day Lingbi County, Suzhou, Anhui). Han Xin ordered his troops to sing Chu folk songs to create a false impression that Chu had fallen to Han forces. The Chu army's morale plummeted and many soldiers deserted.
Xiang Yu attempted to break out the siege and was left with only 28 men when he reached the northern bank of the Wu River (near present-day He County, Chaohu City, Anhui). He made a last stand and managed to slay several Han soldiers before eventually committing suicide.
Han Xin served in the Chinese military during the Han Dynasty, climbing the ladder as a low-level guard before being promoted to the rank of senior general in merely a few years. Lord Liu Bang recognized Xin&rsquos military prowess and predicted that the man had the potential to become a vital asset. This eventually proved to be true, as Xin&rsquos decisiveness and strategic thinking helped paved the way for Bang to be able to establish himself as one of three rebel leaders who competed to gain military superiority in the region. Under the charge of Liu Bang, Han Xin played a critical role in forcing the end of a five-year war between the Chu and Han armies.
During this conflict, Xin waged battles with Chu armies much larger than his own, using tactics that involved psychological warfare, as well as surprise attacks and strategic positioning to gain the upper hand in conflicts. A primary display of Xin&rsquos combat effectiveness can be found through the Battle of Jingxing, during which Xin positioned approximately 30,000 of his men with their backs against a river (blocking any potential for a surprise attack), ensuring that they would fight at the peak of their ability when facing off against an estimated 200,000 enemy soldiers. Concurrently, he sent a small number of soldiers on horseback to capture the enemy camp and replace their flags, so that as the opposing army faced defeat on the battlefield, the shocking discovery that they had no base to retreat to would cause their army to collapse, allowing Xin to capitalize on their confusion and secure a tactical victory. Despite his military expertise, Han Xin was executed in 196 BCE under accusations of conspiracy against the state after being caught housing a Chu refugee in his home.
Rebellions in Qi and Zhao
In 206 BC Liu Bang was appointed King of Han by Xiang Yu and given the land of Bashu (in present-day Sichuan) as his domain. Liu Bang had about 30,000 troops under his command then and several thousand civilians with him. After reaching his destination, Liu Bang ordered the gallery roads leading into Bashu to be destroyed as a precautionary move against any possible attack from the rear and to trick Xiang Yu that he had no intention of leaving Bashu.
Meanwhile, in the former Qi state, Tian Rong (Qi's chancellor) was unhappy with Xiang Yu's allocation of Qi territories, and rose in rebellion against the vassal kings of Jiaodong, Qi and Jibei (collectively known as the Three Qis). Tian Rong conquered the Three Qis and reinstated Tian Fu as the King of Qi, but took over the throne himself later. Tian Rong put Peng Yue in charge of his army and ordered Peng to attack Western Chu. Tian Rong also sent troops to support another rebellion in the former Zhao state, led by Chen Yu, a former Zhao vice chancellor. In 205 BC, Chen Yu overthrew Zhang Er, the King of Changshan, and seized Zhang's domain and reinstalled Zhao Xie (King of Dai) on the throne of Zhao. Xiang Yu felt threatened by the rebellions in Qi and Zhao and led an army to attack Tian Rong.
Han conquest of Three Qins
While Xiang Yu was away to suppress the rebellions, Liu Bang used the opportunity to attack the Three Qins in Guanzhong. Liu Bang's general Han Xin ordered his men to pretend to repair the gallery roads in order to put Zhang Han (King of Yong) off guard, while secretly making advances through Chencang. Zhang Han was taken by surprise and defeated by the Han forces in two consecutive battles. Taking advantage of the victory, Liu Bang proceeded to conquer Longxi, Beidi and Shangjun. Liu Bang also sent his men to fetch his family in Pei (in present-day Xuzhou). Upon hearing news of Liu Bang's attacks, Xiang Yu sent an army to Yangxia to intercept the Han army, and appointed Zheng Chang as King of Hán to help him cover his flank. In Yan, Zang Tu killed Han Guang (King of Liaodong) and seized Han's lands and proclaimed himself ruler of the unified Yan state.
Battle of Pengcheng
In 205 BC, after establishing his base in Guanzhong, Liu Bang advanced his forces east of Hangu Pass to conquer the Henan region. Sima Xin (King of Sai), Dong Yi (King of Di) and Shen Yang (King of Henan) surrendered to Liu Bang. Zheng Chang (King of Hán) refused to submit to Liu Bang and was defeated by Liu's general Han Xin in battle, and replaced by Hán Xin. Zhang Er (former King of Changshan) came to join Liu Bang after losing his domain to Zhao Xie and Chen Yu. In the third month, Liu Bang attacked Henei with help from Wei Bao (King of Western Wei). When Liu Bang received news that Emperor Yi of Chu had been murdered on Xiang Yu's orders, he held a memorial service for the emperor, accusing Xiang of committing regicide, and using that incident as political propaganda to justify his war against Western Chu.
In the fourth month of 205 BC, Xiang Yu defeated Tian Rong at Chengyang and the latter was killed during his retreat to Pingyuan. Although the Qi kingdom surrendered to Western Chu, Xiang Yu did not appease the people and instead allowed his troops to loot and plunder Qi territories. Tian Rong's younger brother Tian Heng installed Tian Guang (Tian Rong's son) on the Qi throne, and continued to lead resistance against Chu. Meanwhile, Liu Bang had mustered an army of about 560,000 men with support from the surrendered vassal kings. In the eighth month, Chu's capital Pengcheng (present-day Xuzhou) fell to the coalition force led by Liu Bang. When Xiang Yu received news that Liu Bang had occupied Pengcheng, he led 30,000 troops back to retake Pengcheng. Liu Bang was caught off guard and his army suffered heavy casualties and his family was captured by Chu forces. After the battle, Han lost its territorial gains in Chu and most of the kings who surrendered to Han earlier defected to Chu.
Battle of Jingsuo
After their defeat at Pengcheng, the strength of the Han forces decreased drastically. Liu Bang's family was captured by Western Chu forces and kept as hostages, and many of the vassal kings who surrendered to Liu Bang earlier defected to Xiang Yu's side. Besides, the Qi and Zhao kingdoms also requested to make peace with Chu.
Upon reaching Xiayi (present-day Xiayi County, Henan), which was defended by his brother-in-law, Liu Bang reorganised his troops for a retreat. When he arrived at Yu (present-day Yucheng County, Henan), Liu Bang sent an envoy to meet Ying Bu, the King of Jiujiang. Ying Bu agreed to join Liu Bang's side and rebelled against Western Chu. Xiang Yu sent Long Ju to lead an army to attack Ying Bu.
In the sixth month of 205 BC, Liu Bang named his son Liu Ying (future Emperor Hui of Han) as crown prince, and ordered him to defend Liyang (present-day Yanliang District, Shaanxi). Shortly after, Han forces conquered Feiqiu (present-day Xingping, Shaanxi), which was guarded by Zhang Han, and Zhang committed suicide.
On another front, Ying Bu was unable to defeat Long Ju and decided to give up, and he went to meet Liu Bang with Sui He. Liu Bang reorganised his army, which now included reinforcements from Guanzhong (sent by Xiao He) and Han Xin's troops. Liu Bang's forces attacked Western Chu at Jing County (near present-day Luoyang) and Suoting (near present-day Xingyang) and scored a victory, driving Xiang Yu's forces east of Xingyang.
