"The Art of War " by Sun Tzu - Translated by Samual B. Griffith
The longevity and the universal influence of Sun Tzu's The Art of War are indisputable. A collection of essays on the ethics and subtleties of battle, it has served as the modus operandi of many famous leaders, including Mao Tse-Tung. It has been studied by scholars and laypeople across the world for literally centuries.
The work emphasizes psychological strategy rather than simple physical attack. It teaches the art of "knowing the enemy as you know yourself," presenting war as a battle of wills more than weapons, and offering an alternative to bloody wars of attrition.
The Art of War was written well over two thousand yeas ago, most likely between 450 and 300 B.C. At that time, China was a maelstrom of kidnappers, army deserters, and peasants who would literally kill to elevate their station in life. Vendettas climaxed at swordpoint. Ineffectual warriors were beheaded, pickled or boiled. Criminals lost limbs, or were castrated.
Gradually, the conduct of war became more organized. Generals became more sophisticated and strategic, writing dictums such as essays included in the Art of War.
