Book Notes: "The Art of War" by Sun Tzu

The Art of WarThe Art of War by Sun Tzu

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I have read this several times in a variety of translations. This version is formatted like a poem and is a quick read. Interesting that Sun Tzu echoes many of the issues raised by Thucydides. I remember an Instructor Gunnery during my Regimental Officers Basic Course, a captain from the United States artillery, beginning every lesson with: "Sun Tzu says...". And, "If a 155 round lands on a tank, the tank is toast". So much in such a short book and it was quite possibly written before Thucydides was born.
