After the fall of the Chou (c. 400 BC) China divided into principalities

    All of Sun Tzu’s strategies in The Art of War have been adopted by American businesses in order for them to be successful.

In business the moral law means one’s mission or goal. Heaven compares to outside forces such as the market and dependencies. Earth would be the scene of action such as people, place, product, and process included in production

    written about warfare, some romantic and others imbedded with the realities of war. In this paper I would like to compare two such poems and hopefully show the reader that the glories of war fall short of its realities. We will be looking at "The Charge of the Light Brigade" by Alfred Lord Tennyson and "Dulce Et Decorum Est" by Wilfred Owen. These two poems are prime examples of both the romantic and the realistic views of war. We will see differences in their diction and word choice and by seeing

    Tzu’s book, The Art of War remains the most important treatise ever written on military strategy. Is it though?

At time of writing, Chinese forces were still using weapons like the Qiang (spear) and Ji (halberd). These primarily close-ranged bladed weapons bear no semblance to modern firearms or high explosives whatsoever. In the last century especially, the technology of war has advanced so
