 ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu

Sun Wu, better known as Sun Tzu or Sunzi, was an ancient Chinese military general, strategist and philosopher from the Zhou Dynasty. He is traditionally believed to be the author of The Art of War, an extremely influential ancient Chinese book on military strategy. Sun Tzu has had a significant impact on Chinese and Asian history and culture, both as an author of The Art of War and through legend.


Sun's historicity is uncertain. Traditional accounts place him from c. 544–496 BCE in the Spring and Autumn Period of China (722–481 BCE) as a military general serving under King Helü of Wu. Modern scholars accepting his historicity place the completion of The Art of War in the Warring States Period (476–221 BCE), based on the descriptions of warfare in the text, and on the similarity of text's prose to other works completed in the early Warring States period.


Traditional accounts state that his descendant, Sun Bin, also wrote a treatise on military tactics, entitled Sun Bin's Art of War. Both Sun Wu and Sun Bin were referred to as Sun Tzu in classical Chinese writings, and some historians believed that Sun Wu was in fact Sun Bin until Sun Bin's own treatise was discovered in 1972. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Sun Tzu's The Art of War grew in popularity and saw practical use in Western society. His work continues to influence both Asian and Western culture, politics, business, and sports.
