Previous stratagem group

 

Stratagems

The six stratagems in this group are:

  1. Use a Woman to Ensnare a Man
  2. Fling Open the Gates to the Empty City
  3. Let the Enemy's Own Spies Sow Discord in the Enemy Camp
  4. Inflict Injury on Onself in Order to Win the Enemy's Trust
  5. Chain Together the Enemy's Warships
  6. Run Away

Stratagem group

Description

The stratagems in this group are primarily intended for situations where you are significantly weaker than your enemies or you are in a situation where failure and serious problems are highly likely.

Number

This is the sixth stratagem group of six.

Alternative names

Stratagems for Desperate Situations

Stratagems Before the Last Stand

Stratagems for Situations of Weakness

Discussion

These stratagems are the most difficult to get right of all the other stratagem sets. When you are in a weaker position and the risks are greater, then you may not have any fall-back position and need to operate with finesse and dexterity.

Understanding of these stratagems well should be undertaken well before you need to use them. When you face high risks, study and practice  beforehand will make success far more likely than consulting the book on the day.
