Publisher's Summary

This Chinese treatise on war was written by Sun Tzu in the 6th century B.C. Each one of the 13 chapters is devoted to a different aspect of warfare, making it the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time. Studied by generals from Napoleon to Rommel, it is still one of the most influential works on the subject and is required reading in most military academies around the world. Although it was meant to be a practical guide to warfare in the age of chariots, this seminal work on the philosophy of successful leadership is as applicable to contemporary business as it is to war, and has become increasingly popular among today's corporate and political leaders.

Is enough one person for a victorius war

If you could sum up The Art of War in three words, what would they be?

Many criticize generals and warriors as brave genius etc what we often forget is the value of their officers Any general knows what Sun Tzu says the main factor is how he performs in time and terrain under the pressure of the opponent for this the main advantage he must have is capable men besides him. I don't know if I am unfair but this doctrine is very good for the way the orientals used to fight and simple good if we compare it with the writings of Xenophon or the genius of Hannibal also we must not forget that in west a general is a politician also and not just a subject of the imperator many times in west the war was covered politics to win battles doesn't mean winning a war.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Art of War?
