Chapter 2170: The Two Armies Clash!
Translated by: Hypersheep325
Edited by: Michyrr
The screams of the dying filled the air as the ma.s.sive millstone knocked aside countless Underworld Cavalry.
Boom! The b.l.o.o.d.y mist permeating the battlefield was scattered by a frightening force, and everyone was finally able to see what was truly going on.
The tens of thousands of Tang soldiers were no longer at their peak, and a ma.s.sive chunk had been torn out of the h.e.l.l Wheel Formation. Their numbers had been reduced by more than six thousand, and the ground at their feet was covered in corpses.
Since the start of this battle, this army had appeared invincible and unstoppable. No one had been any match for them, their strength proved through the fact that they had killed two hundred thousand while suffering minimal losses.
This was the first time this army had suffered such heavy losses.
Moreover, they were clearly both mentally and physically wounded.
When infantry clashed with cavalry of the same level, losses were inevitable.
But regardless of the losses they had suffered, they had at least been able to maintain the circular h.e.l.l Wheel Formation. The Underworld Cavalry had not been so lucky.
Across from the Tang army, the bodies of countless Underworld Cavalry covered the ground. They had died miserable deaths, cleaved open by swords, and they had lost over sixteen thousand of their men.
Most importantly, in this clash, the Underworld Cavalry’s formation had been utterly broken.
Without the boost from the formation and the speed of their charge, these cavalry had become infantry on horseback, not even a match for ordinary infantry.
A Tang commander in front of the steel fortress raised his sword high, his face chilling. Now that the Underworld Formation had been broken, he ordered the army to go on a full offensive.
With a great rumble, the h.e.l.l Wheel Formation began to turn like a grinder, sweeping toward the remnants of the Underworld Cavalry.
A general should pursue a desperate enemy to the very end!
The formation had been broken, so now was the best time to deal with the Underworld Cavalry.
“Impossible, absolutely impossible!”
“How could the Underworld Cavalry lose? They had clearly managed to suppress that millstone!”
“This is an elite army our Youzhou spent several years training up! How could it lose to some no-name army?”
“Impossible! Is there no army that can deal with that Tang army?”
All the Youzhou soldiers had been struck dumb.
They were on the verge of going crazy!
They had always been proud of the Underworld Cavalry and had been confident in its victory, but the final result had taken everyone by surprise.
“How is this possible?”
Tian Qianzhen was also deeply stunned, his eyes wide open.
They had lost too quickly!
The two of them had not been mentally prepared at all for this.
A moment later, the two of them looked up at w.a.n.g Chong.
After stationing those forty thousand soldiers in front of the steel fortress, w.a.n.g Chong had not done anything more, no matter how intense the battle became or how many opponents they had faced. He had not even grown uneasy after the two had calmed the panic and sent out the Underworld Cavalry.
The two of them hadn’t understood what was going on at first, but now, they had a flash of insight.
So, did he expect this all along… the two of them mentally muttered.
w.a.n.g Chong seemed to sense their gazes, and coldly laughed.
“Hmph! Too simpleminded! The h.e.l.l Wheel Formation isn’t the strongest, but it’s not something that the Underworld Cavalry alone can break!”
Youzhou might have believed in their victory, but in w.a.n.g Chong’s mind, they had never had any chance.
Cavalry truly did have an advantage over infantry, but anyone who thought that this alone could break the h.e.l.l Wheel Formation was far too naive.
If it were that easy, why would w.a.n.g Chong have gone to such great lengths to train this army of heavy infantry?
Screams broke out from the front. Before the Underworld Cavalry could react, the h.e.l.l Wheel had swept them into the formation, and the giant swords slashed, cutting down the Underworld Cavalry.
The army began to rapidly collapse.
More and more Underworld Cavalry collapsed into pools of blood. The two of them had been engaged in such a close melee that the Underworld Cavalry couldn’t escape even if they wanted to.
In addition, they were surrounded by soldiers, so they couldn’t run very fast.
The heavy swords swung down again and again, killing four to five thousand Underworld Cavalry on the spot.
This was not the one-on-one clash everyone had initially imagined. As the Underworld Cavalry were swept up in the h.e.l.l Wheel Formation, they would each face six or seven Tang heavy infantry.
In this situation, individual strength no longer mattered. Even when ten-some Underworld Cavalry grouped together to jointly defend, they were unable to avert their ultimate fate.
An Underworld Cavalry with their formation shattered did not possess the strength to contend against the Great Tang’s heavy infantry.
“Retreat! Retreat!” the officers of the Underworld Cavalry frantically yelled.
A landslide of a rout! A true landslide!
In this clash, they had utterly lost. If they did not retreat now, their entire army might be wiped out.
The surviving Underworld Cavalry immediately began to madly flee, and as they fled, the screams of thousands of dying Underworld Cavalry came from behind as the Tang soldiers pursued.
“Pa.s.s on my order! Tell Baizhen Tuoluo to mobilize the White Bear Tuoluo Soldiers!
(TN: Tuoluo can also refer to a star in Chinese astrology that is usually interpreted as an evil omen.)
“Get in touch with the armies on the front lines! No matter what, we have to stop the Tang heavy infantry!
“Notify the Eastern Turkic Khaganate and the Goguryeo Empire that it’s their turn to send out soldiers! They need to hold down the Tang army and make sure they don’t withdraw! They’re at the end of their strength and won’t be able to last for long!”
At this dangerous moment, Cui Qianyou grimly issued several orders. With his final order, his eyes flashed with cold light.
Though the Tang heavy infantry seemed unstoppable, Cui Qianyou’s Great General intuition told him that this was his chance.
Even though this army had already slain more than two hundred thousand soldiers, including the Andong Protectorate’s Underworld Cavalry, this resplendent feat had come at a price.
Even the strongest soldiers still had bodies of flesh and blood.
Losses were inevitable in battle.
Although the Tang heavy infantry had won this battle, it had come at a heavy price. Their strength had declined, and they were no longer so frightening.
In addition, Youzhou had been the first to send its soldiers. This was not because Cui Qianyou was stupid, but because they were paving the way for the other countries.
The soldiers of Youzhou were far from enough to win this battle. The rest of the alliance was needed for success.
Now, the other countries had no more excuses.
War drums thundered, swiftly delivering Cui Qianyou’s orders to the front.
“You stay in the rear. I’ll go up ahead to supervise the battle!” Tian Qianzhen suddenly rode forward as he spoke to the nearby Cui Qianyou.
Cui Qianyou nodded and watched as Tian Qianzhen swiftly disappeared.
The army of more than two million had only sent out several hundred thousand soldiers into the field, and Great Generals from neither side had partic.i.p.ated. However, Tian Qianzhen did not need to personally take action. He simply needed to be at the front to maintain the morale of the army so that the alliance army could focus on fighting.
In the Eastern Turkic army, Tiechi Bileli’s eyes flashed with a sharp light, and he ordered, “Pa.s.s on my order! Prepare to mobilize the Golden Wolf Army!”
With the cold wave descending, the territory of the Eastern Turkic Khaganate would soon be turned into a land sealed by ice. Only working together with everyone else and conquering the Great Tang would allow them to avoid the brunt of the cold wave. Moreover, the Great Tang had many more cities and granaries than the other countries.
So long as the Great Tang was sacrificed, the other countries could avoid the calamity of the cold wave.
This was not the time to conserve strength and plot against each other. No matter what, they had to defeat the Great Tang as quickly as possible.
A messenger quickly departed.
The Golden Wolf Army!
This was one of the elite armies of the Eastern Turkic Khaganate. In terms of fighting power, it was definitely on par with An Lushan’s Underworld Cavalry.
The Eastern Turks had committed everything to this decisive war against the Great Tang.
“King Bojang, it’s time for you to move out!”
(TN: King Bojang was the twenty-eighth king of Goguryeo, and he was essentially a puppet king controlled by Yeon Gaesomun.)
Goguryeon Emperor Yeon Gaesomun narrowed his eyes as he spoke.
About six feet behind him, a short Goguryeon general with a scar across his left eye respectfully said, “Yes, Your Majesty!”
This was a fierce general under Yeon Gaesomun, and though he had yet to reach the Great General level, he was a peak Brigadier General. Moreover, he was an extremely senior general who possessed mastery over the saber. He wasn’t a Great General, but he wasn’t far from one.
Most importantly, King Bojang was a master strategist, and the soldiers under his command were strong and fierce, willing to fight to the death.
The strength displayed by the Great Tang was just too much. This was not the time to conserve strength.
