Art of War paper


Your assignment is to, as a team, read the text and choose a minimum of twenty statements in the text that apply to this class and the simulation. Each team member will then write a paper examining at least five of those statements (as a team, you must cover all of the statements/stanzas chosen) and how they apply. What do the statements mean? Have you been fully taking those ideas into account so far in the class and simulation? If so, how? (details) If not, how does it make you rethink your approach to the simulation and class? How will you recommend your team adjusts their approach based on this reading? (again, provide specific details). This is a formal paper…you should have a proper introduction and conclusion and a recognizable thesis that is supported with evidence.

  • The paper should be five pages minimum. (normal fonts and margins)
  • You should properly cite (from Sun Tzu or from the textbook or other sources) using APA format, including in-text citations (you must cite in-text and include a Works Cited page or the paper will receive zero credit).
  • There will be a Turnitin dropbox on eLearn for your paper. You are able to repeatedly upload versions of the paper until the due date. Papers that receive an Originality score of 20% or higher similarity from Turnitin will receive an automatic zero. This is to be exclusively your analysis. Papers that receive an Originality score above 5% will be problematic and will negatively impact your grade (Turnitin will ignore any direct quotes you include from the text in calculating the originality score…and you should use the direct quotes from Sun Tzu in your paper). Upload versions of the paper early to verify the originality score in time to do something about it if it is too high.
  • Papers are graded based on the ideas included and in the presentation of those ideas (spelling, grammar, organization, etc.). Use the Writing Center or other resources as necessary to ensure you are turning in a professional quality paper.

The Stanzas I picked

4. Tactical Disposition (Chapter)

14. Hence the skillful fighter puts himself into a position which makes defeat impossible, and does not miss the moment for defeating the enemy.

5. Energy (Chapter)

2. Fighting with a large army under your command is nowise different from fighting with a small one: it is merely a question of instituting signs and signals.

13. The quality of decision is like the well-timed swoop of a falcon which enables it to strike and destroy its victim.

6. Weak Points and Strong (Chapter)

8. Hence that general is skillful in attack whose opponent does not know what to defend; and he is skillful in defense whose opponent does not know what to attack.

8. Variation in Tactics(Chapter)

3. There are roads which must not be followed,armies which must be not attacked, towns which must not be besieged, positions which must not be contested, commands of the sovereign which must not be obeyed.
