According to Zhengzai, in the year of Kaiyuan, the little king Bolu, a subsidiary of the western region of the Tang Dynasty, announced his annexation to Tubo after the princess made peace with his relatives, and under the support of Tubo troops, he controlled the northwest countries. The relationship between anxidu Prefecture and Tang Dynasty was cut off. In 747 A.D., General Gao Xianzhi of Tang Dynasty led the army to defeat the Tubo army in the western region, captured the king of little Bulu and the princess of Tubo, and restored the rule of Tang Dynasty over the western region. Later, Gao Xianzhi pacified the rebellion of Anxi, the attack of Tubo and other neighboring countries. Gao Xianzhi was awarded the Anxi Jiedu emissary for his war achievements, and was called the double walls of the Tang Empire.
In 751 A.D., 100000 Arab troops invaded the western regions, and Gao Xianzhi, the border guard General of the Tang Dynasty, led 30000 border guards to defend the enemy. Gao Xianzhi resisted 100000 yuan with 30000 yuan and fell into a series of bitter battles. Later, the Tang army was defeated because of the treason of its own army. As a result, Gao Xianzhi was removed from Anxi and became an official. In 755 A.D., he rebelled and led 150000 troops to attack Chang'an. In a hurry, 50000 troops were recruited to resist under the leadership of Gao Xianzhi. As a result, Gao Xianzhi's troops of King Qin were defeated in successive battles in Sishui, Luoyang and other places. In the end, he had to retreat to Tongguan. As a result, he was executed by Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty because of the false accusation of the supervisor. Although false accusation is the main reason, the "empire double walls", once invincible in the war outside the western regions, were defeated by the rebels repeatedly in the east of Guandong, which also completely annoyed Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty.
In fact, Gao Xianzhi's army can't defeat the army of Anlushan and Shi Siming. It's not that his command is weak, and he doesn't use all his strength. The contrast between the two armies at that time can restore the reason why Gao Xianzhi lost many times.
First, the combat effectiveness of the officers and the rebels is not equal. The rebellion of Anlu mountain was premeditated, and its soldiers were trained, brave and experienced. However, after years of national peace and security, the imperial court's army was not trained and its troops were insufficient. When it broke out, the troops were recruited in an emergency. However, most of them were jobless vagrants, scoundrels and craftsmen who had never participated in the battle. Their combat effectiveness was too poor. It's hard to win a war without a good general.
The soldiers of Anlu mountain have PK with the grassland tribes all the year round to train a group of teachers of tigers and wolves. We should know that the grassland in the North was the heart of the Tang Dynasty at that time. And the threat of the western regions is not on the list. The army of Anlushan has been PK with experts all the year round. No matter the quality of individual soldiers, the quality of generals, weapons and equipment, and the reserves of food and grass, Gao Xianzhi is not a magnitude at all.
Second, the military system is complex and cannot fully follow its command. Gao Xianzhi, after his failure, Xuanzong let him leave the post of governor of Anxi. And the 50000 troops temporarily recruited to resist the rebels came from the people and local soldiers. The whole division of Qinwang was put together in a hurry, and was put into the battle before it could be integrated. There are various factions in the army, and they will not obey the command of Gao Xianzhi unconditionally. It's not an old team of its own. The people under it have different ideas, so they can't command in the battlefield.
But the Anlu mountain, which was guarded in the north of Tang Dynasty, was totally different. Anlu mountain has been operating in the north for more than ten or twenty years. He is also the governor of Youzhou, the governor of Pinglu and the governor of Fanyang. With the help of military and political forces, Anlu mountain can be said to be absolute. No one dares to oppose it. Xuanzong's words are not as good as his.
Third, treacherous officials have lost the opportunity to be fully prepared. Before the outbreak of the Anshi rebellion, the court received the news that Anlushan was ready to rebel. The treacherous minister fooled the emperor and said: I had expected the rebellion of Anlu mountain. However, there are not many people who really want to rebel. The generals and soldiers under Anlushan will not rebel against the court. Give me a few days, and naturally someone will send me the head of Anlu mountain. The court misjudged the current situation and made a wrong decision. Only then did Gao Xianzhi's hasty army fight against the long planned Anshi rebels.
Fourth, Gao Xianzhi's mortal enemy is in trouble. As soon as Gao Xianzhi had a strategic retreat, he was framed and executed, which became a historical regret. In the early years, Gao Xianzhi expedited the country of xiaobulu. Because the overseers at that time did not dare to take risks to advance lightly, they made Gao Xianzhi the pioneer and captured the king of xiaobulu alive. All the credit was taken away by Gao Xianzhi, and they became enemies. In order to pacify the rebellion of an Shi, Bian Lingcheng became the overseer of Gao Xianzhi again. When he lost, the enemy was in trouble and reported to the Emperor: Gao Xianzhi listened to the enchantment of envelope evergreen, changed the direction of March without permission, abandoned hundreds of miles of land in Shaanxi county and fled back to Tongguan. In addition, the soldiers' rations and rewards are withheld, which is dangerous for mutiny in the army. Emperor, I want to kill Gao Xianzhi.
There were many reasons for the failure of the army in the early period of the Anshi rebellion, not all of which could be attributed to Gao Xianzhi. However, Gao Xianzhi's army was subject to the supervision and restriction of the emperor at any time, which was also the main reason why Gao Xianzhi was killed in the end. Once Emperor Xuanzong of Tang Dynasty excited Gao Xianzhi, he became the one who sent the head.
At that time, Gao Xianzhi didn't lose. As long as he stayed at Tongguan, he could buy time for the king's troops. However, Xuanzong only hoped to eliminate the rebels in a short period of time, but it backfired. After listening to Gao Xianzhi's passive defense, he directly killed them, which made the army even more useless. In the end, the main forces to eliminate the rebels were Hexi army and Anxi army transferred internally, as well as Huihe army in the western region, which was the foundation laid by gaoxianzhi and fengchangqing. Without them, Tang would have died, and gaoxianzhi would have been loyal to the emperor.
