Brief introduction to the four Warring States periods: in the Southern Dynasty, Zhou Xingsi, a minister on horseback, was ordered by the emperor to compile the thousand character essay. The four famous generals in the Warring States period were described as "the most excellent in army and the best in animal husbandry". They all started from the most grass-roots officers in the army. With their own efforts, they gradually grew into the most important generals of Qin and Zhao. It represents the highest level of actual combat in the Warring States period. They are:,,,, respectively.
Baiqi was born in the Qin state during the Warring States period. In the 13th year of emperor Zhaowang of Qin Dynasty (294 BC), he was appointed as the commander of zuozhu and led the attack on the new town of Han (in the west of Yichuan County, Henan Province). In the following year, he moved from zuozhuchang to zuogen, sent troops to attack the Han and Wei dynasties, wiped out the Allied forces of the Han and Wei dynasties in yique (now Longmen, Luoyang, Henan Province) with various methods, captured the first 240000 troops, captured the general gongsunxi and captured five cities (see). He was promoted to captain of the state for his merit. He crossed the Yellow River to capture the land from the east of han'anyi to the Qianhe river.
In the 16th year, Baiqi and simajin (second grandson), Keqing, jointly conquered Yuancheng. In twenty-one years, Baiqi attacked Zhao and occupied Guo Langcheng. Twenty eight years, attack Chu, Bayan, Deng and other five cities.
次年攻陷楚国的都城郢(今江陵西北)，焚毁夷陵(今 宜昌)，向东进兵至竟陵，楚王逃离都城，避难于陈(参见鄢郢之战)。秦国以郢都为南郡。白起受封为武安君(言能抚养军士，战必克，得百集，故号武安)。又攻取楚国，平定巫、黔中(今 、贵州地区)二郡(参见黔中之战)(附注：二十七年，大将司马错发兵攻取黔中等地，但三十年白起攻楚，复取巫、黔中，初置黔中郡。期间黔中等地可能为楚国夺回，故而史籍中出现司马错和白起两次攻取黔中的记载。)
In the following year, he captured the capital of Chu (now northwest of Jiangling in Hubei), burned Yiling (now Yichang in Hubei), and marched eastward to jingling. The king of Chu fled the capital and took refuge in Chen (see the battle of Yan Ying). The capital of Qin is the South County. Baiqi was granted the title of King Wu'an. In the 27th year, Sima cuofa, the general, attacked the middle of Guizhou Province, but in the thirtieth year, he attacked Chu in vain, took the middle of Guizhou again, and set up the middle of Guizhou. During this period, the middle area of Guizhou may have been recaptured by the state of Chu. Therefore, there are two records in the historical records of Sima CuO and Baiqi who took the middle area of Guizhou. )
In thirty-four years, Bai Qi led his army to attack the Zhao Wei allied army to save Han and break the allied army in Huayang (now the south of the river is Xinzheng North). Wei defeated mangmao and captured Han Zhaowei (also known as the three Jin Dynasty) and beheaded 130000 generals (see the war of Huayang). He fought Jiayan, the general of Zhao, and drowned 20000 Zhao soldiers. In forty-three years, Baiqi attacked Xingcheng, captured five cities and beheaded fifty thousand people (see the battle of Xingcheng).
Wang Jian, a famous general of the Qin State in the Warring States period, was born in the east of Guanzhong and Pingyang (now in the northeast of Fuping, Shaanxi), an outstanding strategist in the Qin Dynasty. His main achievements include destroying Handan, the capital of Zhao state, destroying Yan and Zhao, and destroying Chu state with most of the forces of Qin state. Together with his son, Wang Ben, he became the most meritorious official in destroying the six kingdoms. The outstanding military command can make it parallel with Baiqi, Li Mu and Lianpo. Wang Jian is the ancestor of Langya and Taiyuan Wang.
In the Western Han Dynasty, Wang Jian was regarded as the general of Qin state. He pacified six states with outstanding achievements. Qin Shihuang respected him as his teacher. However, he could not help Qin Shihuang to establish a moral government to consolidate the foundation of the state. Compared with Baiqi, Wang Jian was "short in every inch and strong in every inch".
Lianpo is from Taiyuan, Shanxi Province (i.e. Yuncheng, Shanxi Province, Dezhou, Shandong Province), with a surname of,, whose birth and death years are unknown. At the end of the Warring States period, Zhao's famous generals, together with Baiqi, Wang Jian and Li Mu, were called "four famous generals of the Warring States period". He led his troops to fight against the state of Qi and won a great victory. After seizing Jinyang, the king of Zhao named him Shangqing. Lianpo is famous for his bravery and determination. In the early stage, he successfully resisted the Qin army in the way of defending. After the war of Changping, it defeated the invasion of Yan state, killed the chestnut belly of Yan state, and made the other side cut five cities for peace. In 251 B.C., he defeated Yan army and was granted the title of prime minister. When Zhao mourned Xiangwang, because he was not successful, he successively went to the state of Wei and Chu to live in the state of Wei. Later, he died in Chu and was buried in Shouchun.
At that time, 64 famous generals with outstanding martial arts, such as Lianpo, were consecrated in the temple of wuchengwang, which was called the 64 generals of wuchengwang temple. He was one of the seventy-two generals in the Song Dynasty.
Li Mu (? - 229 BC), Ying surname,, mu, Bo Ren Ren Ren (now Longyao in Xingtai), a military strategist of Zhao state in the Warring States period, and Baiqi, Wang Jian and Lianpo were called "four great generals of the Warring States period".
Li Mu's life and deeds can be roughly divided into two stages: first, he fought against the Huns at the northern border of Zhao state, and then he mainly resisted the Qin state. Because of the heavy damage to the Qin army in the war of Yi'an, he was granted the title of King Wu'an. In 229 B.C., King Zhao moved to Qin's seclusion plan. He was believed to have captured Li Mu's military power and killed him shortly afterwards.
