There was a knock on the door.
Elder Long pushed the door and walked in.
After glancing at Chen You’en who was asleep on the bed, he said softly, “Young master, the border is in an emergency, the allied army of the Hundred Clans has moved south early, catching Zhenjiang City off guard, and now the eyes of the world are focused on Zhenjiang City in the Northern Region.”
“Well, there is no such thing as preparation on the battlefield, Huo Zhenxiao has issued two military orders in quick succession, conscripting the military forces of all four directions and hiring from all over the world, there is no way the Hundred Clans Allied Army will wait for him to prepare everything before fighting.”
Chen Dong nodded calmly, his eyes unperturbed, even with a hint of indifference.
“Young master, the incoming force is raging, Zhenjiang City is afraid that it can’t hold up, after all, the top battle force ……” Long Lao said in a low voice.
Just before he finished speaking, Chen Dong interrupted.
“It has nothing to do with me.”
Seeing that Elder Long was about to say something else.
Chen Dong waved his hand, “Go out first, I’ll stay with You En for a while, don’t wake her up, the Chen family has already sent half of their resources to Zhenjiang City, that’s enough.”
Long Lao sighed helplessly and turned to leave the room.
In one day, wolves and smoke rose in all directions.
The eyes of the world converged on Zhenjiang City.
Even though all the forces had already prepared themselves mentally for this great battle.
But their hearts still leapt at the raging army of the Hundred Clans.
The waves were like mountains as the armies poured in one after another.
The city was stretched to the limit.
Intelligence reports, like snowflakes, flew one after another onto the desks of the giants of the various powers.
One by one, the intelligence sent out to all of them, causing everyone to draw in a cold breath.
The Hundred Clans United Army had relied on a terrifying number of human battles and had almost led the Great Snow Dragon Riders by the nose in this one day’s time!
And all Zhenjiang City could rely on was the battle strength of the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, struggling to hold on.
The four Rong Wu had not yet arrived in their entirety.
The heavenly employment had not a*sembled at Zhenjiang City.
From the very beginning of the preparations for the great battle, the Hundred Clans had a head start.
The two military orders that Huo Zhenxiao had sent out in quick succession were made somewhat chicken-hearted by the sudden arrival of the allied army of the Hundred Clans.
The mobilisation of a large number of Rongwu to advance would have taken time in itself!
And within this time, it was destined to be the most critical moment for Zhenjiang City.
If it survives, there is still a chance for a comeback.
If it doesn’t, and Zhenjiang City collapses, then it will collapse within ten thousand miles of the domain!
At that time, even if the Four Directions Rongwu and the World Employment arrived, it would be difficult to stop the disadvantage!
“In a day’s time, Huo Zhenxiao can hold out to this extent, worthy of being the God of War of the World, the country’s warrior!”
“A hundred thousand armies pouring in one after another, splitting a huge sea of troops into such a size, perhaps with logistics in mind, but it has to be said that this does split the 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Rider Army too thinly, the pressure on Zhenjiang City skyrockets!”
The pressure on Zhenjiang City has skyrocketed!” “The barbarian army is now approaching 2 million, and if Zhenjiang City were to face 300,000 Great Snow Dragons, it would still be able to hold its own, but this time there are many more soldiers in the barbarian army who can stand up to the Great Snow Dragons!”
“This battle, if it is really defended, he Huo Zhenxiao is afraid that he can really be sealed as a god and the people of the domain will build a temple for him and offer incense to him!”
One by one, the heads of powerful families and giants of power, looking at the information coming in, all smacked their lips.
They were outside of the situation and had a full view of the whole situation of the battle.
It was not just the beacons and wolves around Zhenjiang City, it was even clearer that there was an even greater tide of allied troops of the Hundred Clans surging towards Zhenjiang City.
As night fell.
The flames of war in Zhenjiang City still remained unextinguished.
Cannon fire lit up the night sky of Zhenjiang City like daylight.
The roar of the cannons resonated through the clouds.
Killing, shouting, resounded through this land of the Northern Domain.
The smell of blood seemed to be spreading towards a wider area of the Northern Domain.
The battle was slaughtering, and lives were being slaughtered.
Looking down from Zhenjiang City, there was scorched earth and dead bodies everywhere.
Inside the barracks.
Huo Zhenxiao sat behind a desk, quickly dealing with military affairs.
As the master of the army, he did not need to go into battle unless it was necessary, but he was in overall command of all the battlefields.
The whole day went by without a drop of water.
He had forgotten his hunger and thirst because of the heavy workload and the weight of the mountain.
The cannon fire, from time to time, shone a bright light into the barracks.
Master Khang Khong sat cross-legged, gently twirling his Buddhist beads and chanting sutras.
Bai Qi hurried in, his stalwart face stony with worry.
“Sovereign, the battle is tight, the allied forces of the barbarians are rushing over in waves by the hundreds of thousands, the Great Snow Dragon Riders we have sent out on all sides do not even have a chance to rest, they are completely pinned down on the battlefield, even food and water are difficult to import.”
Huo Zhenxiao spat out two words, his aura overpowering, “If we fall, then the ten thousand miles of fertile land behind us will be a flat river. If we can’t stop them, then even if they are there, they can’t stop them. The Great Snow Dragon Riders are the anchor of this battle, telling all sides of the battlefield that if they fall, their wives and children behind them will all be slaves, worse than animals!”
“We all know that, but when will our reinforcements arrive?”
Bai Qi frowned and asked through clenched teeth, “I beg the Sovereign’s pardon, but these are the words that the brothers on all sides of the battlefield want to know the answer to!”
The war was tight and this should not have been asked.
But the great battle was now, one day in the making, with 300,000 Great Snow Dragon Riders on all sides fighting to the death in the face of the heavy oncoming barbarian hordes.
With 200,000 men on the outside, they are still holding back the steady stream of rabble hordes to death, making it difficult to advance an inch.
It was not so much an answer.
Rather, it was a glimmer of hope!
Huo Zhenxiao raised his sword brows and gazed at Bai Qi with a cold, biting light.
“Do you know the consequences of asking this?”
Bai Qi nodded: “But the allied forces of the barbarians on the battlefield now tend to be close to two million according to statistics, to the hundred tribes it is only a force of 20,000 from one tribe, among which there are some elites who have enlightened the Heavenly Wolf Martial Dao body, our Great Snow Dragon Cavalry Army only has 300,000 men, according to the blood nature of our Great Snow Dragon Cavalry Army, even so, my humble servant should not ask.”
“But …… there are already Qi powerhouses participating in the battlefield, and there are also large groups of mercenaries roaming around intermingled with them.”
The moment the words left his mouth.
A dead silence fell within the barracks.
Even Huo Zhenxiao couldn’t help but have his pupils tighten to the extreme.
Three seconds later.
Huo Zhenxiao snorted, “They are trying to take advantage of the fact that reinforcements have not yet arrived to completely crush Zhenjiang City, but in a few days’ time, it has become the greatest danger to Zhenjiang City!”
There was a pause.
Huo Zhenxiao added, “Tell the brothers, three days, as long as we survive three days, we can turn the tide, within three days, even if you die, you must die standing up on the battlefield!”
After saying this, he waved his hand widely, signalling for Master Kongkong and Bai Qi to leave.
When both of them had left.
Huo Zhenxiao’s aura had all but shrivelled up a notch.
Leaning back in his chair, he rubbed his face.
He stared blankly at the barracks ceiling.
“Master, this time, what exactly do you want to do?”
“And Chen Dong, the head of my Great Snow Dragon Riding Army, when exactly will you return to the army?”
