Chapter: Terrain



If we know that the enemy is open to attack, but are unaware that our own men are not in a condition to attack, we have gone only halfway towards victory.


Knowing the readiness or otherwise of the enemy for battle is an important piece of intelligence.

If you do not know your own readiness, you will not be able to take advantage of such an opportunity.

In business as in war, knowing when and how to act to greatest advantage is very important.
