Maybe this might help? It is the 2010 series. You get an idea about Cao Cao and Dong Zhuo, Lu Bu - The Yellow Turban Rebellion etc.

Also Kings and Generals on You Tube is a good place too.

There’s just so much great history-related stuff out there right now...I need to get better at time management.

I thought this movie was well done showing the events that led to the famous Battle at Red Cliffs.

Forgive me my old friend.  But I must use all my experience...to get home.

Seen it. LOVED IT.  I may have to see that again.

Went through a few turns in which my enemies just auto-peaced out on me just when I began invading them.

It was due to how much of a pushover the AI-on-AI vassalize diplo option is. 

The AI bastards began vassalizing other AIs left & right.  The diplo map just went nuts.  One turn I'm at war with a pair of nearly equal sized opponents, and their smaller vassals, but next turn I'm suddenly at peace with them all because some neutral put them under the yoke without a sweat.  On the same turn, my diplo relations with those who just vassalized my enemies tanked.  Very likely due to their newly acquired vassals hating me (after being in a war with them), so the diplo maluses also got slammed on.  WTF?

I expect some chaos but mass vassalizations, which also cause new conflict to erupt where there was none, got out of hand pretty quickly.  It's unfortunate that this crazy flip has briefly sent me to playing other games, as I really do like much of what TW3K is.

Hoping this is just an exceptional anomaly, and not the norm.  Although I did see some complaints about how easily the AI vassalizes others, so perhaps it's not WAI and will get adjusted.

A lot of the factions including myself are now vassals of Yuan Shao. It’s actually quite historically plausible as he led the coalition against Dong Zhuo. Let’s see if Cao Cao breaks away and takes him out.

I’ve left settlements undefended and none of the factions opportunistically attacked them. These AI definitely respect the diplomatic status. Large armies of yellow turbans just passed by my settlements. I’m at odds with the “Independent-Han-Warlords-but-vassals-of-the-Dong-family” faction but they don’t seem to be programmed to attack. I guess these insignificant guys are just fodder.

Looks like there’s a patch to deal with Yuan Shao

I am interrupting this discussion to say that, as has been mentioned elsewhere, Nefaro's avatar creeps me out.
Well done.
