Compare where you are sufficient
with where the enemy is sufficient.
Compare where you are lacking with
where the enemy is lacking.

Deception is for the purpose
of seeking victory over an enemy;
To command a group
requires truthfulness.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

Once your basic mind is settled,
you should just tune it and order it,
making it calm and stable,
undisturbed by events,
not deluded by prospects of gain.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

Also, if a general lacks planning ability to
access the officers and place them in positions
where they can use the best of their abilities,
instead assigning them automatically and
thus not making full use of their talents,
then the army will become hesitant.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

Even if you know the configuration of
the land, if your mind is inflexible, you
will not only fail to take advantage of
the ground but may even be harmed by it.
It is important for Generals to adapt in
appropriate ways.

Intersecting ground means the intersections
of main arteries linking together numerous
highway systems: First occupy this ground,
and the people will have to go with you.
So if you get it, you are secure; if you lose it,
you are in peril.

Force means shifts in accumulated energy
or momentum. Skillful warriors are able
to allow the force of momentum to seize
victory for them without exerting their
strength.

Consistent means all along: In ordinary times, it is
imperative that benevolence and trustworthiness
along with dignity and order be manifest to people
from the start, so that later, if they are faced with
enemies, it is possible to meet the situation in an
orderly fashion, with the full trust and acceptance
of the people.

Therefore, the considerations of the

and harm. As they consider benefit, their
work can expand; as they consider harm,

are not moving ahead, they will assume
you are timid, and will take you lightly.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

The ground means the location, the place of
pitched battle—gain the advantage and you live,
lose the advantage and you die. Therefore,
military action is called the ground of life and
death. The path means the way to adjust to the
situation and establish victory—find this and
you survive. Lose this and you perish. Therefore,
it is said to be imperative to examine it.

Assess the advantages in taking advice,
then structure your forces accordingly,
to supplement extraordinary tactics.
Forces are to be structured strategically,
based on what is advantageous.

numerous, you can do battle.

Do not figure on opponents not attacking;
worry about your own lack of preparation.
When you can attack anywhere and defend
everywhere, your military strategy is complete.

victory that cannot be manufactured is
up to the opponent, meaning that the

The power of those who are united is

are divided is reduced. By striking
diminished power with whole power,
it is possible always to win.

So among military forces there are those

and those who get beaten. These are not
natural disasters, but the faults of

You see the inner conditions of
opponents by means of their external
formations. The inner condition of the
formless is inscrutable, whereas that of
those who have adopted a specific form
is obvious. The inscrutable win,
the obvious lose.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

These are ways to certain defeat. First is not
assessing numbers. Second is lack of a
clear system of punishments and rewards.
Third is failure in training. Fourth is
irrational overexcitement. Fifth is
ineffectiveness of law and order. And sixth is
failure to choose the strong and resolute.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

According to my assessment,
even if you have many more troops
than others, how can that
help you to victory?

Generally speaking, the entire military leadership
has to be of one mind, all of the military forces
have to cooperate, in order to be able
to defeat opponents.

To plunder a locality, divide up your troops.
To expand your territory, divide the spoils.

If you know yourself but not the other,
or if you know the other but not
yourself, in either case you cannot be sure
of victory.

Re: The Art of War by Sun-Tzu

The farsighted ruler thinks the situation
through carefully; the good commander
exploits it fully. If there is no advantage,
do not move into action; if there is no gain,
do not deploy the troops; if it is not critical,
do not send them into battle.

The side that fields a fully prepared army
against one that is not
will take the victory.
