The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu (also referred to as "Sun Wu" and "Sunzi"), a high-ranking
military general, strategist and tactician, and it was believed to have been compiled during the late Spring and Autumn period or early Warring States
period. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly known to be the definitive work on
military strategy and tactics of its time. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and: "for the last two
thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name." It has had an influence on
Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.
Disinformation is as old as war actually. This book is still part of military officer training.
