    To illustrate the evolution of ancient and medieval Chinese warfare, Peers analyses ten decisive campaigns, from the Chou Revolt and the Battle of Mu-Yueh in 1027 BCE to the Huan-Erh-Tsui campaign of 1211-1215 CE. Throughout the book he compares contemporary Western practice, dispels myths and stereotypes about the supposedly inscrutable Chinese 'art of war' and assesses the contribution of weapons and tactics to the victories of such commanders as Sun Pin and Li Shih-Min.
