Who was Sun Tzu’s Napoleon?
We know that Thucydides was not only the chronicler, but a general in the
Peloponnesian War, Julius Caesar the architect of the Gallic War, and
Machiavelli an active participant in Florentine diplomatic and martial
affairs. Maurice de Saxe waded through the bloody fields of Malplaquet and
Fontenoy, while both Jomini and Clausewitz kept their own formative
experiences fighting in the Napoleonic Wars firmly in mind as they composed
their respective theoretical works. But what motivated Sun Tzu (or its
anonymous authors) to compose The Art of War? What were its historical
precedents?
