a game with such major, glaring, near-fatal flaws? Didn't anybody know? Didn't anybody
care?" - PC Gamer Nov 98
"Running a close second in the

Art of War:            
Art of War
by Sun Tzu
9) The Army on the Move
- 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.
- After crossing a river, you should get far away
- 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.
- If you are anxious to fight, you should not go to
meet the invader near a river which he has to cross.
- When the enemy is close at hand and remains
quiet, he is relying on the natural strength of his position.
- When he keeps aloof and tries to provoke a
battle, he is anxious for the other side to advance.
- If his place of encampment is easy of access, he
is tendering a bait.
- 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.
- 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.
- Peace proposals unaccompanied by a sworn covenant
indicate a plot.
- When some are seen advancing and some retreating,
it is a lure.
- If the enemy sees an advantage to be gained and
makes no effort to secure it, the soldiers are exhausted.
- 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.
- He who exercises no forethought but makes light
of his opponents is sure to be captured by them.
