China's “Underground Great Wall”

Hello :)

I've just read an article about the ancient Chinese war passage.

"In ancient Chinese history, it is recorded that The Northern Song Dynasty (960-1127 AD) battled for 200 years with the Liao and Jin Dynasties, which at the time were ruled by minority races from China's Northern Territories, the Khitan and Jurchens respectively. The Northern China Plain was an endless flat ground, with no mountains or rivers that could be used to help defend against the northerners."

I have never heard about this before and I would like to know what do you think about this? I find it really cool and if you have anything interesting, feel free to post it here :D
