Summary Long acknowledged as a classic text on strategy, Sun Tzu's 'The Art of War' has been admired by leaders as diverse as Mao Zedong and General Norman Schwarzkopf. However, having been written 2000 years ago, the book can be somewhat daunting to the modern reader. This book has extracted the 6 concepts most applicable to modern warfare, making them easy to understand and to apply to military situations. This updated edition reflects on all that has happened in the past ten years, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the challenge of Iran, the 'Arab Spring', and the continued rise of China.
