(Qinding) Shifengbao jilüe (欽定)石峰堡紀略 (also written 石峯堡紀略) "(Imperially endorsed) Miliary history of the war against the rebels of Shifengbao" is a history of the war of the Qing dynasty 清 (1644-1911) against the Muslim rebellion of Shifengbao 石峰堡, Gansu.

The 21-juan long book was compiled on imperial order shortly after the end of the war. The rebellion was caused by a harsh policy against the Muslims in Gansu after they proved to be very unruly subjects of the Qing. In 1784 Tian Wu 田五 stirred up a rebellion that was put down by the experienced commander Agūi 阿桂 (1717-1797) in 1785. The first part includes laudatory poems by the Qianlong Emperor 乾隆帝 (r. 1736-1795) for the victor.

The book is included in the series Siku quanshu 四庫全書.
