    Why don't they use the river?

    The Yellow River runs along the path they would have to take to Gyou, why don't the Qin use that to help themselves at Retsubi and for supplying/an amphibious assault on the Zhao heartland?

    >amphibious assault

    There's your problem. It's more hassle than its worth, and horses aren't exactly the best river crossers in the owrld

    It would be stupid of Riboku not to keep sentries on the river

    Sentries and forces are two different things

    Getting enough boats into position to carry 200.000 soldiers should be obvious to Zhao spies, thus Riboku realising their target way ahead of time.

    Plus in a way older map, Han's and especially Wei's capitals where situated next to the river along the way. As long as the Qin army travels through Zhao land, GHM will probably stay on his side. If they send boats it is possible for Han (lol) or Wei to take action, providing an unecessary hassel.

    not saying they should shove all or most of their forces on boats, but a land detachment could prove vital somewhere along the line

    which map was it, I don't recall

    Yeah, the southern distance is a bit off.

    Retsubi can still be in Zhao according to the map, the biggest question is about Wei - has Qin pushed it so far down below the river? If not, what is GHM doing?

    EDIT: another way back map
