Previously on Chapter 692:
Chapter 692 was released on September 19th, 2021. It was titled “The Third Group of Soldiers.” The strategic war between the two armies has been worth a read. Kingdom Chapter 692 starts with soldiers astonished to see their enemies from the Zenou clan appearing out of nowhere. They move forward to eliminate them but rather cry in vain.
Lord Kochou receives the report of this and starts analysing what happened. With Kohaku‘s army busy fighting Xin’s Left Wing, their efforts seem to be going down the drain. The first name that comes into Kochou’s mind is Sun Bin, who was the tactician from the battle of Baryou. Kochou analyses the situation and concludes how they were outperformed by their enemy’s tactics. The strategies and tactics applied in this chapter of Kingdom by Kanki are notable.
Lord Kaman comes with his horse to inform Lord Kochou that the enemy has infiltrated through their second line as well. The only way of winning this war was to retreat and regroup. Kochou decides to open up a path to the left towards Kohaku’s army. However, they are stopped midway by Kanki. Now, the numbers won’t matter much, and the face-off begins.
