The main point of Hsi's account is that Wu Sangui defeated Li Zicheng without the Manchus' aid, since the Ming courtiers did not mention the appearance of the Manchus in the battlefield and it was reported that at the time the Manchus were in the vicinity of Shanhaiguan.
Wu Sangui was aware of Li Zicheng's approach, and in response he badgered the Manchus to quickly enter the frontiers, but negotiations between the Ming and Qing commanders were only concluded a few days before the commencement of the battle.
Wu Sangui arrayed his forces outside to the west of the Shanhaiguan fortress (the south-side faces the sea, and the north-side and east-side face Mongol and Manchu territories), and he gave battle to Li Zicheng's army.

Nevertheleses, Wu's army was a decisive piece, a keystone that shifted the momentum towards the side of the Qing.
Wu was wise and savvy enough to see that he would not maintain his status under the control of Li; on the other hand, siding with the Manchus would make him their guide to the central plains, and give him prestige far greater than that bestowed upon Hong Cheng Chou.

But, Wu's family loyalty is not well attested (in 1644, Li Zicheng held many members of Wu's family hostage; but Wu attacked anyway, and his kin were slaughtered, his father dying before his own eyes).
