So,Everyone agrees with Ban Chao. It was windy that night. Ban Chao led the warriors to the residence of Hun emissaries.
He arranged for ten warriors to hide behind the Hu emissaries' houses with drums, and agreed with them that when the fire broke out, they would play drums and shout. The rest of the warriors, armed, lay in ambush on both sides of the gate.
After a while, ban Chao set the fire on fire in accordance with the wind. In an instant, the drums of war and the sound of killing all over the place.
The Huns were panicked and in chaos. Ban Chao killed three enemies with his own hands. The warriors killed more than 30 Hun envoys and followers, and more than 100 were burned to death.
The next day, ban Chao told Guo Xun about it. Guo Xun was shocked. Ban Chao immediately said to him, "although you didn't take part in the operation, where can I take the credit alone?"? Guo Xun was very happy to hear this.
Finally, ban Chao went to see the king of Shanshan and showed him the head of Xiongnu. The king was too frightened to know what to do. Ban Chao explained and comforted him.
In this way, the king finally decided to lean on the side of the Han Dynasty and send his son to the Han Dynasty to show his loyalty.
