Product description
Synopsis
The timeless wisdom of Sun Tzu's The Art of War is as effective in the modern boardroom as it was on the ancient battlefield, providing simple strategies for success and victory. Now this dual-language edition offers even greater insight by allowing you to directly compare the Chinese characters of Sun Tzu with the highly respected English translation of Lionel Giles.

Widely regarded as "The Oldest Military Treatise in the World," this compact little book, written more than 2,500 years ago, today retains much of its original authoritative merit. American officers during World War II read it closely. The Japanese army studied the work for decades, and many twentieth-century Chinese officers are said to have known the book by heart. Maintaining that "all warfare is based on deception" and that "in war . . . let your great object be victory, not lengthy campaigns," the author adds: "That general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack." Principles of strategy, tactics, maneuvering, communication, and supplies; the use of terrain, fire, and the seasons of the year; the classification and utilization of spies; the treatment of soldiers, including captives, all have a modern ring to them. The author even provides rules for the "blitzkrieg," prefacing them with the words that "rapidity is the essence of war." Still a valuable guide to the conduct of war, this volume will be indispensable to military students and of interest to all those fascinated by military history. Unabridged republication of the edition published by The Military Service Publishing Company, Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, 1944.

A book in everyday life not just war

I have several different versions of this book. This version is the best of them all. I bought one more for my grand son, one for a former pastor and another copy for myself. Sun Tzu wrote the definitive book of war. It works in everyday life. Helps define when confrontation should used in everyday life and when it shouldn’t. Napoleon kept a copy by his bedside and most great successful generals use it as Bible. It is taught at west point. I have read it several times and I am a retired pastor that hates conflict.

The Art of War - Sun Tzu

The Art Of War is a must read for everyone. It's not just about war but business, sports, and relationships. Practical information for just about every situation. The lessons we need to know were written a thousand plus years ago and in this book.

If you want to run a sucessful business, household, team, or government you need to read this book.

New and perfect book about The Philosophy about Sun Tzy

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

Very spot on book about the life and philosophy about Sun Tzu. Not a very big book about EVERY thing, but it is a GREAT start for later further study about The Art of War!
