    Whew, groundbreaking stuff. Still better than the Book of Five Rings because at least he didn't write literal grunts to indicate rapidity of attack.

      Funny enough I think he died attacking a city because while he said it will be a disaster you sometimes have to go for the cities. He's good for asymmetrical warfare such as when you are a rebel but the big boys have less to gain from him.

      Because he only mentioned the most obvious things.It has never actually helped anyone in warfare either since anyone above 60 IQ can figure out all of it in a few minutes.

      I never understood why art of war gets hyped so much, especially considering its historical context and purpose which completely undermine its value for any career soldier

      There's a popular theory that Art of War is basically, and unironically, the ancient chinese equivalent of a pamphlet labeled "War for dummies" that was meant for bureaucrats and politicians to read as a basic primer of what their generals were doing and why so as not to get in their way.

    His book is literally Warfare For Dummies. It was written specifically to try and get the goddamn aristocracy to stop getting all their men killed doing retarded shit, because they really liked going to war and taking personal command of their campaigns while having absolutely zero education on the matter. They would frequently forget to even supply their troops with enough food to make it through the projected length of the operation, let alone however long it'd be once they were inevitably delayed.

      The fake steel tests thing was nowhere near as bad as you might think though.

      tl:dr - Metallurgist woman receives orders from Navy to test the steel being used in subs in -100 degree temperatures. Metallurgist decides that these temperatures do not occur anywhere on Earth anyway and rubber stamps that shit because the Navy brass is retarded. 30 years go by without any problems. Her successor is being trained to replace her and noticed the tests are being faked. Rats her out, she does 2.5 years in prison.

    Notice how it's titled The Art of War, not The Rules of War, because war is too complex to be algorithmic. This is to say, he was always right but it doesn't mean his book can accurately predict the winner in every possible war ever. I don't even understand what else you could mean by that post, my petit gay.

      >This is to say, he was always right but it doesn't mean his book can accurately predict the winner
      Or to phrase it in Tzu:
      >>This is to say, he was always right but it doesn't mean he was always right
      >you know the number of your enemy by counting tge campfires at night and dividing by 11 over 3.

        Because his books are more about how any commander should manage his troops and how to decide when to attack, ideally if you followed it you used to win most of the time.
        What are we even arguing about? That only using The Art of War you can predict the victorious faction in any war ever? It's about field commander tactics, not about what a general or admiral should/could do. I don't get what your point is, nobody ever said Sun Tzu was wrong. Your whole OP is a lie and probably bait.

      Absolutely trolling, he has an entire chapter dedicated to talking about terrain.
      More than that, there is a philosophical core to the book that seems obvious but is often forgotten:
      Find the goal of the war and the quickest, most efficient way to achieve it.
      Don't spend years to besiege cities when you can crush an army in the field
      Don't fight at all when threatening or bluffing will work better
      Don't let pride, politics or personal ambition interfere with military matters
      Etc

    How people respond to Sun Tzu is the ultimate shit test. Everybody think they're too smart for it, yet history is littered with corpses who found out in their final moments that they were in fact not smart enough. Because reading it and deeming it obvious is not the same as internalizing and acting upon it.
