About The Book
"â€¦to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemyâ€™s resistance without fighting. The Art Of War is believed to have been written by the Chinese military strategist, philosopher and writer Sun Tzu around 5th century BC. Divided into thirteen chapters, the text is a finely crafted, meticulous guide that deals with military tactics and manoeuvres, which remain relevant and influential even today. Anthologised under Seven Military Classics Of Ancient China, not only has it shaped East Asian warfare, it has also inspired military experts in the West over the centuries. Despite dealing with military stratagem, the text has also inspired experts in the fields of politics, law, sports and business. As a result, The Art Of War has been translated into several languages including English, French, Manchu, Assamese, and other Asian languages."
About Sun Tzu
Tzu, born in the late Spring and Autumn period of China, was a military
strategist, philosopher and writer who was most famous for writing the widely
influential The Art Of War (5th century bc), the oldest military treatise in
the world. While little is known about Sun Tzu's early life, it is widely
believed that he served as a military general under King Helu of Wu, and was
a venerated military figure in Chinese and East Asian culture.
His fame spread to the West from 20th century on, when The Art Of War was
translated into English and French. The military tactics and manoeuvres
prescribed in the book were applicable to various competitive fields, which
led to the increasing importance of both, the text and its author.
