Description
From tactics and strategy to the treatment of soldiers and the use of spies, the teachings of this 2500-year-old Chinese text are as enduring and perennial as they are astute. In 13 sections, it describes all aspects of warfare, emphasizing flexible strategies, quick thinking on the battlefield, the use of intelligence, and understanding the enemy's intentions to turn his weaknesses to your advantage. Today this book serves as a guide to competition of all forms, and is presented here in a beautifully illustrated edition, with colorful images from centuries of Chinese art and the classic 1910 Lionel Giles translation.
