The archetypal BigBookOfWar, ''The Art of War'' (孫子兵法, Sūn Zǐ Bīng Fǎ) is a short Chinese text on warfare, written by Sun Tzu, believed to have been a general of the nation of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period (722481 BCE). In it, Sun gives a basic overview of both [[StrategyVersusTactics strategy and tactics]] that has given countless generations of military leaders and thinkers a basic grounding in military theory.
