Next stratagem group

 

Stratagems

The six stratagems in this group are:

  1. Fool the Sky to Cross the Sea
  2. Besiege Wei to Rescue Zhao
  3. Kill With a Borrowed Knife
  4. Relax While the Enemy Exhausts Himself
  5. Loot a Burning House
  6. Make a Feint to the East While Attacking in the West

Stratagem group

Description

These approaches can work in many situations but are often best when you have a superior force or other resources.

Hence there is assumed the force to besiege, the time to wait for appropriate moments and the troops to split your force in making multiple attacks.

Number

This is the first stratagem group of six.

Alternative names

Winning Stratagems

Stratagems for the Stronger Force

Stratagems for Confrontation

Discussions

Having strength does not guarantee success and even though a frontal attack may succeed, the losses incurred can make this a poor choice.

The major benefit of strength is in the psychological effect it has. When faced with a superior force, many armies will quail and quake and either concede or flee. If they fight, a damaged morale will make them less effective.
