The Plum Flower Manual, Original
梅花谱  Vol. 5, Game 5 and Summary of games 1-5

This is volume 4 of The Plum Flower Manual by Wang, or the original Plum Flower Manual. 
Volume 1 was dedicated to black using the Screen Horse Defence against Red's Central cannon.
In volume 2, red uses the Cross palace cannon opening against black's left central cannon opening. 
Red uses the elephant opening with the cross palace horse variation and gets a beating by black's central cannon in volume 3.
In volume 4, the battle is between red's filed chariot against black's ranked chariot in the same direction cannons opening. Red uses the riverbank cannon nicely. 
Volume 5, well, you guessed it, is dedicated to the Same direction cannons openings again. However, both sides make a switch and red uses the ranked chariot variation to whack black's filed chariot. The games are similar to the ones in The Secret in the Tangerine. Games 1-5. I have added a super summary for games 1-5 with 2 boards for revision purposes.

 On to volume 6 game 1...
