As always with exotic subjects, it is hard to get further information. Andrade writes: "The official Song History has a more interesting story. A few days after the battle, it says, “a corpse came floating upstream, covered in armor and gripping a bow-and-arrow.… It was Zhang Shun, his body pierced by four lances and six arrows. The expression of anger on his face was so vigorous it was as though he were still alive. The troops were surprised and thought it miraculous, and they made a grave and prepared the body for burial, erected a temple, and made sacrifices.” Other sources suggest that Zhang Shun was indeed killed in battle.38 He was later immortalized in the famous novel The Water Margin (水滸傳)."
Incidentally, I am just reading The Water Margin, so want to follow-up on historic/novel Zhang Shun but am quickly stopped by my limited language skills. Swiss history also has a famous insertion/transposition of a later warrior into an old story/national epic: Winkelried.
I have to track down an Austrian copy of Krieg und Krieger im chinesischen Mittelalter, as my book budget has been fully absorbed by an expensive fan printing of the Great Northern War Compendium.
