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