The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. For the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia. The strategies and tactics in the Book transcend the military value and are widely used in the business, life and social contacts. The first annotated English language translation of the Book was completed and published by Lionel Giles in 1910. Lionel Giles (29 December 1875 – 22 January 1958) was a British scholar and translator. Lionel Giles served as assistant curator at the British Museum and Keeper of the Department of Oriental Manuscripts and Printed Books. Lionel Giles is most notable for his 1910 translation of The Art of War by Sun Tzu and The Analects of Confucius. Giles was the son of British diplomat and Sinologist, Herbert Giles. The English translation 2015 edition is quite different from 1910 edition, it is more close to genuine meaning of the Book, and the English readers will have a new and better understanding of the Book after reading the new English translation of the Book. 1910 Translation of the Art of War is collected in the Book for comparison and reference.
