This is the first reasonably accurate English translation of Suntzu’s Art of War. First published in 1910 by Lionel Giles, M.A., who was the assistant in the Department of Oriental printed books and manuscripts for the British Museum.

This publication is based on an Etext version provided by the Project Gutenberg. Dr. Giles’s commentaries are included for the benefit of those who are not familiar with the Ancient Chinese History (500 BC).
