Sun Tzu's Art of War

Posted by Darkademic in Philosophy   0 comments

“If your enemy is watching your knife, spoon out his eye.”

I watched a History Channel documentary on Sun Tzu's Art of War yesterday, and whilst the above quote didn't come from Sun Tzu (indeed, I myself lay claim to that little parcel of wisdom) it was very, very interesting. I've read the Art of War, however the documentary successfully extracted some of the most prominent strategic ideas and applied to them to historical conflicts ranging from ancient China, to the American Civil War, to World War II, to Vietnam.

I'd recommend the documentary to anyone with even a slight interest in military strategy or historical conflict.
