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

The Art of War
by Sun Tzu

9) The Army on the Move

  1. Sun Tzu said: We come now to the question of encamping the army, and observing signs of the enemy. Pass quickly over mountains, and keep in the neighborhood of valleys.
  2. After crossing a river, you should get far away from it.
  3. When an invading force crosses a river in its onward march, do not advance to meet it in mid-stream. It will be best to let half the army get across, and then deliver your attack.
  4. If you are anxious to fight, you should not go to meet the invader near a river which he has to cross.
  5. When the enemy is close at hand and remains quiet, he is relying on the natural strength of his position.
  6. When he keeps aloof and tries to provoke a battle, he is anxious for the other side to advance.
  7. If his place of encampment is easy of access, he is tendering a bait.
  8. Humble words and increased preparations are signs that the enemy is about to advance. Violent language and driving forward as if to the attack are signs that he will retreat.
  9. When the light chariots come out first and take up a position on the wings, it is a sign that the enemy is forming for battle.
  10. Peace proposals unaccompanied by a sworn covenant indicate a plot.
  11. When some are seen advancing and some retreating, it is a lure.
  12. If the enemy sees an advantage to be gained and makes no effort to secure it, the soldiers are exhausted.
  13. If the enemy's troops march up angrily and remain facing ours for a long time without either joining battle or taking themselves off again, the situation is one that demands great vigilance and circumspection.
  14. He who exercises no forethought but makes light of his opponents is sure to be captured by them.
