Translation:

When the enemy’s men were united, they managed to keep them in disorder.

Commentary

Unity and order are closely related. Hence if you divide their forces they will be inclined to disorder.

One reason for this is that you may well be able to separate men from their commanders. Thus isolated, they will become like headless chickens.
