"�to fight and conquer in all your battles is not supreme excellence; supreme excellence consists in breaking the enemy�s resistance without fighting. The Art Of War is believed to have been written by the Chinese military strategist, philosopher and writer Sun Tzu around 5th century BC. Divided into thirteen chapters, the text is a finely crafted, meticulous guide that deals with military tactics and manoeuvres, which remain relevant and influential even today. Anthologised under Seven Military Classics Of Ancient China, not only has it shaped East Asian warfare, it has also inspired military experts in the West over the centuries. Despite dealing with military stratagem, the text has also inspired experts in the fields of politics, law, sports and business. As a result, The Art Of War has been translated into several languages including English, French, Manchu, Assamese, and other Asian languages."
