A military treatise summing up the military experiences prior to and during the mid-Warring States period (475 BC - 221 BC).
Two editions of translations were released, and this publication includes everything:
- The 15 chapters of part 1 released in 1985
- The additional chapter released in 1985
The 15 chapters from 1975's Part II, which were excised for that 1985 edition.
If this is what I think it is, then I first read this as The Second Art of War and found it a much better read than its predecessor. I was never able to find a book with that title.
