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

The Art of War
by Sun Tzu

4) Tactical Dispositions

  1. Sun Tzu said: The good fighters of old first put themselves beyond the possibility of defeat, and then waited for an opportunity of defeating the enemy.
  2. To secure ourselves against defeat lies in our own hands, but the opportunity of defeating the enemy is provided by the enemy himself.
  3. Thus the good fighter is able to secure himself against defeat, but cannot make certain of defeating the enemy.
  4. Security against defeat implies defensive tactics; ability to defeat the enemy means taking the offensive.
  5. Standing on the defensive indicates insufficient strength; attacking, a superabundance of strength.
  6. The general who is skilled in defense hides in the most secret recesses of the earth; he who is skilled in attack flashes forth from the topmost heights of heaven. Thus on the one hand we have ability to protect ourselves; on the other, a victory that is complete.
  7. What the ancients called a clever fighter is one who not only wins, but excels in winning with ease.
  8. Hence his victories bring him neither reputation for wisdom nor credit for courage.
  9. He wins his battles by making no mistakes. Making no mistakes is what establishes the certainty of victory, for it means conquering an enemy that is already defeated.
  10. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy.
  11. In respect of military method, we have, firstly, Measurement; secondly, Estimation of quantity; thirdly, Calculation; fourthly, Balancing of chances; fifthly, Victory.
  12. Measurement owes its existence to Earth; Estimation of quantity to Measurement; Calculation to Estimation of quantity; Balancing of chances to Calculation; and Victory to Balancing of chances.
