For two-and-a-half millennia, Sun Tzu’s Art of War has been the major book on how to successfully wage war. It is studied even today in military colleges around the world. Giles’ lively translation contains hundreds of notes that explain and give context to every line of the original text, including military strategies used by Chinese and other warriors from ancient China to the early 20th Century.
