Accordingly, nearly 600 years ago when Dai Viet was under domination of Chinese Ming’s invaders, the hero named Le Loi and many soldiers from the land of Lam Son rose up in arms.

In middle 1426, Lam Son army was expanded, consolidated the liberation area and marched to the north to surround Dong Quan citadel.

Ming’s General named Wang Tong tried to hold down here and cried for 150,000 reinforcements.

As recognising Xuong Giang citadel located in a key position - the northern gateway toward Dong Quan, Le Loi, Nguyen Trai and the staff decided to destroy the citadel to cut the enemy’s reinforcements.

In late 1426, Lam Son army started controlling Xuong Giang citadel. It was defeated 10 days before Liu Sheng led 10,000 soldiers to the Vietnam-China border gate, proper time for Vietnamese army and people to prepare for fighting against the enemy’s powerful reinforcement force.

On the way to rescue Dong Quan, Liu Sheng and some 10,000 soldiers were defeated at Chi Lang Pass on 10 October 1427. 5 days later, General Liang Ming and the reinforcements were surrounded at Can Tram.

3 days later, ten thousands of enemies were defeated at Ho Cat. Despite being drastically defeated at Chi Lang, Can Tram and Ho Cat, Ming’s troops led by Admiral Thoi Tu and Minister Wang Fu tried to move to Xuong Giang citadel. However, when they arrived, the citadel was controlled by Lam Son’s troop; hence, they had to build fences in the field to wait for the second rescuing troop headed by Mu Sheng.
