This action-packed story begins with the fall of the Qin Empire when the Chu and Han Kingdoms—and their illustrious warlords—battle for control of all of China. When the Chu army agrees to cease fighting and return home, they are followed and attacked by the Han army. Eventually, the Chu army is completely defeated, and their leader killed. Thus begins the Han dynasty, the second unified empire in Chinese history.
