Winner Takes All Chapter 1853


The long sound of trumpets rushed up from within Zhenjiang City.

In an instant.

On top of the city walls, the Great Snow Dragon Riders were standing at attention, all of them declaring their overwhelming killing intent, looking straight at the sky-rushing waves of snow on the northern land.

Rumble ……

The earth trembled.

The violent amplitude was even transmitted through the city walls to the feet of each of the Great Snow Dragon Riders.

After the sound of the trumpet.

The sky and the earth were silent.

Only the rumbling sound that shook the earth echoed incessantly.

Each and every one of the Great Snow Dragon Riders, armour and blades in hand, stood at the top of the city, looking out at the vast army approaching in the distance.

In the eyes of the tigers, which were full of killing intent, there was a rare flicker of scorn.

Even the corners of some people’s foreheads were dripping with drops of sweat.

A disparity of several dozen times!

And that was even when the two sides’ individual strengths were infinitely closer.

To all the Great Snow Dragon Riders, this battle was no different from those who had gone out of the city to die.

With less than 50,000 men defending the city, against an allied force whose numbers were by now impossible to ascertain, this was a battle that could not be won.

Slaughter was rife.

But one by one, the Great Snow Dragon Riders whispered and exchanged whispers.

Not in awe, but speaking last words to their teammates.

“Lao-san, you are the youngest in our army, when the fight starts, you will follow behind your brothers, if we die and you are still alive at the end, you must give a message to my mother, her child is very brave and has not disgraced her family!”

“Why do I have to follow behind you guys when I’m young? I’m young, so I have to be in front of you!”

“Tang Chao, I heard from the commander that your brother died of a serious illness, so you are now the only child in the family, listen to the commander’s order, you will be the last to charge!”

“BullSh*t! I, Tang Chao, was born in the domain and died in the domain, now that a great enemy is at hand, if I still cower and fear that my family will be extinct, then once the city is broken, the domain will not be a domain, how can I be a family?”


Orders, refutations, arguments, echoed in the Great Snow Dragon Rider army.

In the past, this would have been disobedience and a great crime in the army.

But now, no one saw anything wrong with it!

The superiors were thinking more, but the subordinates were thinking more.

No one is backing down!


The trumpets suddenly sounded and became urgent.

It was as if a trumpet call had been given, and all the noise came to a screeching halt.

A tiger’s eye looked down on the city, and as far as the eye could see, amidst the rolling waves of snow, the allied army of the Hundred Tribes was black and endless, and the terrifying sense of oppression made everyone’s heart tremble.


A drum beat.

“Sons and daughters, the Golden Goblet vows not to return, and the horse’s leather laments returning!”

Huo Zhenxiao’s thick voice rushed through the sky and cracked the silk, resounding through Zhenjiang City.

At this moment.

Only then did the Great Snow Dragon Riders realise that it was Huo Zhenxiao who was beating the battle drums!

At the corner of the city wall, a row of eighteen battle drums were lined up, and Huo Zhenxiao, dressed in his armour, was standing majestically in the middle.

As everyone looked towards him.

He was in high spirits as he gripped his drumsticks with both hands and struck the drums rapidly.


Knock, knock, knock ……

The fierce sound of the battle drums rang out.

Eighteen battle drums were beaten at the same time with a great sound.

It was more as if they were beating on the hearts of all the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army.

At this moment, everyone’s aura changed dramatically, and the last trace of fear that lurked in the depths of their eyes disappeared.


The shouts that rose from within Zhenjiang City resounded through the heavens and the earth.

The next second.

Rumble, rumble, rumble ……

The countless hot weapons that had already poked out from within the city walls all spat out tongues of fire.

The sky was covered with fire, instantly rendering everything around them orange and yellow.

Countless shells poured out towards the allied troops of the Hundred Tribes in the distance.

An explosion, a mushroom cloud, rose from the battlefield in a dense and spectacular manner.

The battle came together and went straight to a white-hot stage.

Zhenjiang City seemed to be transformed into a weapon of war, spewing out endless cannon fire with abandon.

The army of the Hundred Clans was like a beast of prey, charging fearlessly towards Zhenjiang City amidst the shouting and killing of the sky.

The artillery shells emptied out a swathe of the Hundred Alliance troops, followed by the Hundred Alliance troops in the rear filling up instantly.

The artillery fire was fierce.

But the rongwu of these Hundred Clans Allied Army was even more endless.

The sound of shouting, the sound of cannon fire, the sound of the sky and the ears.

A tidal wave of allied troops rolled in, and in just half an hour, the ground outside the northern part of Zhenjiang City was already covered in a thick layer of mutilated bodies.

However, the charge still did not stop!

Even in the rear of the allied army of the Hundred Clans, the sound of even louder battle drums resounded.

Over Zhenjiang City, the cannon fire was fierce.

The orange-red light of the fire was rendered over the city, and all the Great Snow Dragon Riders were transformed into a part of the war machine, running wildly.

The war drums were still loud and powerful.

But Huo Zhenxiao had already left, and he and Chen Dong stood on top of the city wall, overlooking the vast, unending army of the Hundred Clans below.

Both of them frowned as hard as they could.

“What a desperate way to fight.”

Chen Dong could not help but smack his lips and lament, “There is no rules and regulations to speak of, they are completely relying on human lives to charge hard.”

“The Extra-territorial Hundred Clans have joined forces and have the qualifications for this hard charge.”

Huo Zhenxiao smiled meaningfully, “Attacking the heart is the top, attacking the city is the bottom, the Great Snow Dragon Riding Army has long been as firm as a rock, if attacking the heart is not possible, we can only take human lives to attack the city.”

“Isn’t there still ten then siege and five then attack?” Chen Dong raised an eyebrow.

“The art of war is dead, people are alive.”

Huo Zhenxiao gave an odd smile, “Do you really think that nuclear bombs are just for show?”

“Such a great killing weapon, why not just use it?”

Chen Dong asked offhandedly, and as soon as the words left his mouth, he saw the strange look in Huo Zhenxiao’s eyes, he first froze, and then suddenly came to his senses in an instant.

Of course the nuclear bomb could be used!

But the key was whether it could be used successfully!

The Great Snow Dragon Cavalry had been running the Northern Region for so many years, relying on a group of single soldiers who had the ability to stop bullets with their flesh.

If it’s the same for a single soldier, then there might be a hidden army of the Hidden World in the vast army of the barbarians!

With a combined force, it might not be impossible to stop a nuclear bomb!

After thinking about this, Chen Dong rubbed his chin, “Then I know why they didn’t besiege us, but chose to directly harden Zhenjiang City,.”

Huo Zhenxiao let out a eek from his mouth and looked at Chen Dong in surprise.

Chen Dong’s gaze met Huo Zhenxiao’s, “Surrounding Zhenjiang City is forcing us to jump over the wall in a dog’s rush, if we drop nukes at close range, the Hidden World will never be able to stop it, using this kind of human sea tactics to hard shake the city walls, at least it gives Zhenjiang City a glimmer of hope for survival, not to come up and drop nukes.”

“That’s more or less what it means, but it’s still not a bad pressure for us.”

Huo Zhenxiao shrugged and raised his finger to point at the layer of remnants of corpses spread out below him, “If we let these corpses build an uphill road that leads straight up to the city walls, the allied army of the Hundred Clans further back will be running wild and straight up the city walls.”

Chen Dong: “……”

He gazed with deep brows at the tragic scene below.

This possibility was not unheard of, and it was huge! –

Having been reminded of this by Huo Zhenxiao, he realised that these allied troops of the Hundred Clans charging at the forefront didn’t seem to have much difference in strength from the rabble rongwu he had faced back then!

Were all these human lives …… just stepping stones for the elite in the rear?
