Historical Description:[edit | edit source]

The legendary Chinese general and military adviser behind The Art of War supposedly lived during the late Spring and Autumn period of Chinese history, around 500 BCE. Born with the name Sun Wu, the West remembers him as Sun Tzu, with the honorific title Tzu meaning 'master.' The Spring and Autumn Annals, as well as Sima Qian's later Records of the Grand Historian, agree that he served under King Helü of Wu. However, his actual exploits are not well documented, and there is some doubt as to whether he existed at all.


While Sima Qian claims that Sun Tzu helped lead Wu forces at the Battle of Boju, a historical account written closer to the event does not mention his name. Some scholars suggest that The Art of War was compiled from multiple sources rather than set down by a single master. Either way, there is no denying the lasting influence of the text.
