2.8 Chapter: Wagin War 2.8 < /br> Translation: The skillful soldier does not raise a second levy, neither are his supply-wagons loaded more than twice. < /br> CommentaryTaxes at home to pay for wars are not popular and not good for morale. It is better to find other ways. Also, once war is declared, a strong army does not wait for reinforcements or supplies but uses surprise to quickly invade, creating momentum and gaining immediate ground. In business, once you have secured a budget for marketing and sales, you should use that or find funds elsewhere, rather than going back, cap in hand.
