Chapter: The Army on the March

9.40

Translation:

If our troops are no more in number than the enemy, that is amply sufficient; it only means that no direct attack can be made. What we can do is simply to concentrate all our available strength, keep a close watch on the enemy, and obtain reinforcements.

Commentary

When you have many tactics at your fingertips, then a direct conflict of two equal forces is wasteful and risky. Better to use your superior skill in other ways.
