Ding Feng (birth and death dates unknown) was a military general of the state of Eastern Wu in the Three Kingdoms period. He was a younger brother of Ding Feng (丁奉), who also served as a general in Wu. (The Chinese characters for Feng in their names are different.) The younger Ding Feng's highest appointment during his service was "General of the Rear" (後將軍). He died before his elder brother.[1]

In fiction[edit]

Ding Feng is briefly mentioned by name in the historical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms by Luo Guanzhong, which romanticises the historical events before and during the Three Kingdoms period. He appeared in chapter 117 during the Conquest of Shu by Wei. When the Shu general Zhuge Zhan was under attack by Wei forces at Mianzhu Pass (綿竹關), he requested reinforcements from Eastern Wu. The Wu emperor Sun Xiu ordered Ding Feng (elder), with Ding Feng (younger) and Sun Yi (孫異) as his deputies, to lead 50,000 troops to attack the Wei commandery of Shouchun (壽春) in a bid to divert Wei attention away from Shu.[2]
