An ancient Chinese treatise on military strategy, The Art of War has influenced competitive endeavours in modern society across politics, sports, the boardroom and the battlefield. It is traditionally ascribed to Sun Tzu (544-496BC), who lived in China in the era of the Warring States, a period of intense conflict where seven states fought for control of their land. The brilliant general went on to win many wars for his kind and the wisdom of those years was collected for the future. The Art of War remains the ultimate philosophy to defeat an opponent decisively and efficiently during fast-paced dynamic situations, within the constraints of finite human and physical resources.

Sun Tzu was a Chinese general, military strategist, writer, and philosopher who lived in the Eastern Zhou period of ancient China.
