Overview

This Halcyon Classics ebook contains two versions of Sun Tzu's fundamental treatise on military strategy and tactics. Both the original translation and an annotated version are included. Written in the 6th century BC, THE ART OF WAR is composed of thirteen chapters, each devoted to a particular aspect of warfare. General Vo Nguyen Giap successfully implemented tactics described in THE ART OF WAR during the Battle of Dien Bien Phu to defeat the French, leading to the partitioning of Vietnam. Vo later used the same strategy against American forces in Vietnam, contributing to their defeat. THE ART OF WAR is recommended reading for officers in the U.S. Army and Marine Corps, and required for the CIA. In recent years, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military, and has been used in Business Management courses as well as law. This ebook is DRM free and includes an active table of contents. Contents: I. Laying Plans II. Waging War III. Attack By Stratagem IV. Tactical Dispositions V. Energy VI. Weak Points And Strong VII.
