Sun Tzu provides the ulitmate in "how to not screw up at Warfare" done in a format that works for just about any level of technology. Much is insanely obvious. Some is very insightful and learnable only by a lot of experience in war.
I've been wondering abouit something, and maybe Bulldog can answer it. Sun Tze is supposedly the ancestor of the rulers of the Wu kingdom rulers (Sun Jian, Sun Ce, etc.) Is this certain, or is it a case of nobility making stuff up to make their lineage/family gain in reputation??
Isn't it interesting that most of the best/useful original works of ancient China were written before China was ever forged into a unified "nation"? Confucious was from the same era, for instance, if I'm not mistaken.
