Art of War: [1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] [11] [12]

The Art of War
by Sun Tzu

7) Maneuvering

  1. If you set a fully equipped army in motion in order to snatch an advantage, the chances are that you will be too late. On the other hand, to detach a flying column for the purpose involves the sacrifice of its support.
  2. Thus, if you order your men to roll up their buff-coats, and make forced moves without halting day or night, covering double the usual distance at a stretch, doing a hundred squares in order to wrest an advantage, the leaders of all your three divisions will fall into the hands of the enemy.
  3. The stronger men will be in front, the jaded ones will fall behind, and on this plan only one-tenth of your army will reach its destination.
  4. If you march fifty squares in order to outmaneuver the enemy, you will lose the leader of your first division, and only half your force will reach the goal.
  5. If you march thirty squares with the same object, two-thirds of your army will arrive.
  6. We cannot enter into alliances until we are acquainted with the designs of our neighbors.
  7. In war, practice dissimulation, and you will succeed.
  8. Whether to concentrate or to divide your troops, must be decided by circumstances.
  9. Let your rapidity be that of the wind, your compactness that of the forest.
  10. Let your plans be dark and impenetrable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunderbolt.
  11. Ponder and deliberate before you make a move.
  12. He will conquer who has learnt the artifice of deviation. Such is the art of maneuvering.
  13. To refrain from intercepting an enemy whose banners are in perfect order, to refrain from attacking an army drawn up in calm and confident array:--this is the art of studying circumstances.
  14. Do not pursue an enemy who simulates flight.
  15. Do not swallow bait offered by the enemy. Do not interfere with an army that is returning home.
  16. Such is the art of warfare.
