Three Kingdoms’ Leadership in Today’s Context
The Three Kingdoms (三国) era was a period of turmoil and bloodshed for China, with frequent infighting between warlords plunging China into a perpetual state of chaos. However, the ravages of war bore witness to the emergence of heroes and great leaders aplenty, many of whom have been worshipped for generations ever since, for displaying unwavering loyalty, incredible bravery and tactical ingenuity in defending their land.
