It consists of 13 chapters that reflect the mind of a born military strategist and practical soldier whose maxims, full of acuteness and commonsense, relate as much to the present day as they do to the military conditions of the time in which they were written. Preceded by critical notes on Sun Tzu and his work and including key Chinese characters. Translated.
