<h2>Sun Tzu - The Art of War</h2><b>Sun Tzu - The Art of War</b><br><b>The Art of War</b> is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the Late Spring and Autumn Period. The work, which is attributed to the ancient Chinese military strategist <b>Sun Tzu</b> (also spelled <b>Sunzi</b>), is composed of 13 chapters. Each one is devoted to an aspect of warfare and how it applies to <b>military strategy and tactics</b>. For almost 1500 years it was the lead text in an anthology that would be formalised as <b>the Seven Military Classics</b> by Emperor Shenzong of Song in 1080. <b>The Art of War</b> remains the most influential strategy text in <b>East Asian warfare</b> and has influenced both <b>Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy, lifestyles and beyond</b>.<br>The book contained a detailed explanation and analysis of the Chinese military, from weapons and strategy to rank and discipline. <b>Sun Tzu</b> also stressed the importance of intelligence operatives and espionage to the war effort. Because <b>Sun Tzu</b> has long been considered to be one of history's finest military tacticians and analysts, his teachings and strategies formed the basis of advanced military training for centuries to come.
