Map showing an attempted reconstruction of the movements of the troops of the Chinese Han and Chu dynasties during the Chu-Han Contention (206-202 BCE), in which Liu Bang of Han and Xiang Yu of Chu repeatedly battled each other. The conflict culminated in the Battle of Giaxia (202 BCE) where Liu Bang and his general Han Xin defeated the Chu army after having captured Xiang Yu's young concubine, Consort Yu and luring Xiang Yu, who wanted to save her, into an ambush.
