Chapter: The Attack by Fire

12.12

Translation:

In every army, the five developments connected with fire must be known, the movements of the stars calculated, and a watch kept for the proper days.

Commentary

Understand fire and how to control it. Understood, it can be your ally.

Movement of stars provides location information. Knowing where you are at all times is essential.

A watch outwards lets you know more of what is happening all around you. The further you can see, the more land you can command.
