Chapter: Weak Points and Strong 6.11

Translation:

If we wish to fight, the enemy can be forced to an engagement even though he be sheltered behind a high rampart and a deep ditch. All we need do is attack some other place that he will be obliged to relieve.

Commentary

A simple way to winkle an enemy out of his hidey-hole is to force him to come to the defense of some other place.

Rather than laying siege, attack other places. When the enemy leaves their stronghold to help others, then you can ambush them.

It is also possible to feed them false information that other places are being attacked, with the same effect.
