Sun Tzu, personal name was Sun Wu, 5th century B.C.E. famous for the book.The Art of War, the earliest known treatise on war and military science, still used today in military training.

The Art of War.is a systematic guide to strategy and tactics for rulers and commanders. The book discusses various maneuvers and the effect of terrain on the outcome of battles. It stresses the importance of accurate information about the enemy's forces, dispositions, deployments and movements. This is summarized in the axiom."Know the enemy and know yourself and you can fight a hundred battles with no danger of defeat". It also emphasizes the unpredictability of battle and the use of flexible strategies and tactics. The book's insistence on the close relationship between political considerations and military policy greatly influenced some modern strategists. 

Five kinds of secret agents were identified, the agent in place (who has access to enemy secrets), the double agent (who is recruited from an enemy's intelligence and security service), the deception agent (who provides disinformation to confuse the enemy), the expendable agent (whose loss can enable other more important agents to operate) and the penetration agent (who has access to an enemy's senior leadership). 

Sun Tzu stressed the importance of good intelligence organization and he also wrote of counterintelligence and psychological warfare, such as the importance of flexible tactics based on surprise and deception and that guerrilla strategy must be based primarily on alertness, mobility and attack, such as select the tactic of seeming to come from the east and attacking from the west; avoid the solid, attack the hollow; attack, withdraw; deliver a lightning blow, seek a quick end to the conflict. Also important was accepting battle only under favourable conditions.

Greek communist guerrillas lost their war (194649) for a variety of reasons, not so much because Tito deprived them of sanctuary in and supply from Yugoslavia but more because they forfeited popular support in northern Greece by their barbarous treatment of civilian hostages, by their rapacious behavior in villages and by kidnapping children and sending them to be raised in communist countries.

Alexander the Great's successful campaigns resulted not only from mobile and flexible tactics but also from a shrewd political expedient of winning the loyalty of various tribes
He said."All warfare is based on deception. Hence, when able to attack, we must seem unable, when using our forces, we must seem inactive, when we are near, we must make the enemy believe that we are far away, when far away, we must make him believe we are near. Hold out baits to entice the enemy. Feign disorder and crush him."....comprised with information from Encyclopedia Britannica.
