The Art of War

Planning: Strategies & Tactics
Sun Tzu strategy advice

Sun Tzu



To win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill.





Going to War

You can fight a war for a long time or you can make your nation strong. You can't do both.

Doing the right things at the start of war is like approaching a woman. Your enemy's men must open the door. After that, you should act like a streaking rabbit. The enemy will be unable to catch you.




A Philosophy of Deception

Warfare is one thing. It is a philosophy of deception.

When you are ready, you try to appear incapacitated.

When active, you pretend inactivity.

When you are close to the enemy, you appear distant.

When far away, pretend you are near.



Sun Tzu strategy advice quotes

You must know these five things.

You then know the theory of victory.

Sun Tzu







 Victorious warriors win first and then go to war,
while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.


If the enemy has a strong position, entice him away from it.

If the enemy is confused, be decisive.

If the enemy is solid, prepare against him.

If the enemy is strong, avoid him.

If the enemy is angry, frustrate him.

If the enemy is weaker, make him arrogant.

If the enemy is relaxed, make him work.

If the enemy is united, break him apart.

Attack him when he is unprepared. Leave when he least expects it.

You will find a place where you can win. Don't pass it by.
