    "The Art of War" appears to be a nearly complete version, minus annotations. Thanks!

    I downloaded it years ago. I believe it was from Guggenheim Press.

    If the military were to write a modern version, it would tell how to sell expensive programs to congress, how to cover your butt when the program doesn't work, and how to work as a consultant, lobbyist, etc after you retire. Can't mention war as if you do have a plan that might actually work, the press and politicians will destroy you and your career and you will never move on to the "private" sector.

    Oh! I have been reading this for decades...since I was a child. It has something for everyone and every situation. I will compare this one to the one and I have and see which translation I prefer. Thanks!

    Ya might want to pay careful attention to the INDIRECT method of warfare... the full version contains that...

    tells ya how to take over a country/nation WITHOUT using standard warfare tactics...

    FYI kinda thing... this was REQUIRED reading in the CCCP/KGB and is still required by the Chinese...

    and then look at some of these...

    Amazon also has a good one by a Kiwi IIRC... same title IIRC...

    Had it on my tablet for awhile now. A couple months ago picked up a hardback version at Sam's Club that also has other classics of Eastern Philosophy mainly Confucious. I'd worn out a couple paperback versions over the years.
