The Art of War is a Chinese military treatise that was written during the 6th century BC by Sun Tzu. Composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare, it has long been praised as the definitive work on military strategies and tactics of its time.
The Art of War is one of the oldest and most successful books on military strategy in the world. It has had a huge influence on Eastern military thinking, business tactics, and beyond. Sun Tzu recognized the importance of positioning in strategy and that position is affected both by objective conditions in the physical environment and the subjective opinions of competitive actors in that environment. He taught that strategy was not planning in the sense of working through a to-do list, but rather that it requires quick and appropriate responses to changing conditions. Planning works in a controlled environment, but in a competitive environment, competing plans collide, creating unexpected situations.

《孫子兵法》 又稱《孫武兵法》、《吳孫子兵法》、《孫子兵書》、《孫武兵書》等，是中國古典軍事文化遺產中的璀璨瑰寶，是中國優秀文化傳統的重要組成部分。其內容博大精深，思想精邃富贍，邏輯縝密嚴謹。作者為春秋末年的齊國人孫武（字長卿）。一般認為，《孫子兵法》成書於專諸刺吳王僚之後至闔閭三年孫武見吳王之間，也即前 515 至前 512 年。全書分為十三篇，是孫武初次見面贈送給吳王的見面禮，事見司馬遷《史記》：“孫子武者，齊人也，以兵法見吳王闔閭。闔閭曰：子之十三篇吾盡觀之矣。”
