Chapter: The Army on the March 9.44

Translation:

If in training soldiers commands are habitually enforced, the army will be well-disciplined; if not, its discipline will be bad.

Commentary

Never let a command be ignored as this is teaching soldiers that commands are optional.

Once a command is given, it should be seen through, although this should not make you blind. If it appears that the command was unwise, it can be changed with another firm command.
