Sun Tzu and the Art of War

Circa 500 BCE the Chinese General Sun Tzu composed the worlds first textbook on military strategy. His basic tactics are as applicable today as they were 25 centuries ago: "All warfare is based on deception," "opportunities multiply as they are seized," "there has never been a protracted war from which a country has benefited" or "if ignorant both of your enemy and yourself, you are certain to be in peril."
>This traditional copy of "the Art of War" is several centuries old.

Sun Tzu's book became known to the West in the late 18th Century and has been a component of military studies ever since.
