Translation:

When you penetrate deeply into a country, it is serious ground. When you penetrate but a little way, it is facile ground.

Commentary

In ‘serious ground’, the enemy is all around you, for example where you have passed by fortified places. This requires great caution.

Facile ground is mentioned above.
