The Art of War

The Art of War

by Sun Tzu

  1. The art of war is governed by five factors,which are the moral law, heaven, earth, the commander and method & discipline.
  2. These five heads should be familier to every general , he who knows will be victorious, he who knows them will not fail.

In the practical art of war, the best thing of all is to take the enemy's country whole and intact, to shatter and destroy , it is not so good.

If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained, you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.

Five dngerous faults which may affect a General:-

(a) Recklessness, which leads to destruction.

(b) Cowardice, which leads to capture.

(c) A hasty temper, which can be provoked by   

    insults.

(d) A delicacy of honour which is sensitive to  

    shame.

(d) Over solicitude for his men, which exposes 

     him to worry and trouble.

When an army is overthrown and its leader slain, the cause will surely be found among these five dangerous faults. Let them be a subject of meditation.
