Book Overview
' Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt .' The Art of War is the earliest-known treatise on military science. Written by military general Sun Tzu in Ancient China, it provides tactical advice on war strategy and how to adjust tactics in ever-evolving situations. These methods have since been used by countless military figures, from Napoleon to Douglas MacArthur. Despite being written over two thousand years ago, this treatise enjoys enduring popularity among readers. Its shrewd and penetrating theories are used today as a source of insight into office politics, business management and corporate strategy. This hardback gift edition consists of Lionel Giles' classic 1910 translation and includes beautiful illustrations.
