No, but I've read The Art of War by Sun Tzu who possibly knew fu-Tzu of Qufu.

Possible but unlikely, a Masterful book btw Paul, did you study history at Uni or something, (and Clausewitz On War too)...or was it voluntary?

No I picked up The Art of War in a WH Smiths sale. I can see how it has been used in modern warfare though - the chapter on strategy where he says take a country intact is what Russia tried to do with Poland but the Germans wanted to destroy everything. If Hitler and Napoleon had read Sun Tzu the world might have turned out differently.

I never went to Uni btw. Did my Accountancy exams via day release.

Forgot to mention, just in case anyone wondered about the post was that yesterday was the his supposed birth date.
