Chapter: Weak Points and Strong



You can be sure of succeeding in your attacks if you only attack places which are undefended. You can ensure the safety of your defense if you only hold positions that cannot be attacked.


Where possible, attack in places which are undefended, such as flanks and the rear.

If all areas are defended, select weaker points to attack, where defenses are weakest.

In the opposite sense, ensure you have no undefended or weak points that offer the enemy an easy way in.
