Chapter 990 – Guts That Were Castrated
The difference between the An Lushan Rebellion and the previous seven Battle Maps was that this was an internal rebellion raised by a border general. It was not a faceoff between two sides.
Talking about this battle, one had to briefly mention the Provincial Governor system of the Tang Dynasty.
Tang Taizong, Tang Gaozong first took down Liaodong, then the west Turks, Tuyuhun, and other nearby regions, causing the Tang Dynasty to be an empire with a vast border.
