Art Of War
"The Art of War", written by Sun Tzu (circa 400-320 BC), summarizes realistic, applicable concepts and principles of war and military strategy in thirteen chapters:
- Strategic Assessments
- Waging War
- Planning a Siege / Attack by Stratagem
- Tactical dispositions
- Force / Energy
- Weak and Strong Points
- Variations in Tactics
- Maneuvering / Army on the March
- Nine Situations
- Fire Attacks
- Use of Spies
It is the oldest surving text about military strategy, and is still applicable today, not only in the military.
Quotes from "The Art of War" that apply to Go are compiled at Military proverbs.
