:: The Art of War ::

Failure to give orders which the troops can remember by heart
is the commander's fault.

Failure to give clear orders and instructions
is the commander's fault.

But after the commander has given the orders and instructions clearly,
the soldiers are to blame if they choose not to obey.

  1. Calculations
    moral cause: share a common belief
    nature: weather, season, etc… , changes in climates, limits of time
    situation: distance, nature of terrain, physical conditions
    leadership: wisdom, confidence, compassion, courage, firmness
    discipline: reward and punishment, logistics, etc…

    7 Calculations:
    pull cadets and NCOs together
    command better
    better advantage
    command order and discipline
    superior
    better trained cadets
    fairer system of reward and punishment

    Deception:
    The capable must pretend to be incapable
    Appear inactive when one wants to activate the army
    When attacking a close target, pretend to be looking at a further objective
    When attacking a faraway target, pretend to be invading an immediate objective

    Exploitation:
    Entice your enemy with the bait of small gains
    and crush them after throwing their forces into internal strife.
    Be vigilant when your enemy is alert and without weakness.
    Retreat temporarily when your enemy is strong.
    Provoke your enemy to cause its anger.
    Pretend to be weak so that your enemy will become complacent.
    Sow discord when your enemy forces are united.
    Attack when the enemy forces are unprepared.
    Attack by surprise, but always be flexible.

    Deliberate:
    weigh weakness and strengths of both own and enemy forces
    careful planning lead to victory
    be in an advantageous position

  2. Planning
    Time is money:
    only after everything is ready, then we are ready

    Avoid long battles:
    it will only dampen the vigour and morale,
    better fight to win quickly

    Provoke cadets, motivate them to excel.
    Entice cadets with attractive rewards.
