Sun Tzu was born into minor nobility in what is now Shan Dong,
a part of China north of Shanghai.
Born by the name "Sun Wu", he received a good education and
grew up to write a military treatise "ART OF WAR" in order to get noticed and hired by royalty.
Sun Wu wrote 82 chapters and eventually ended up training the
Chinese Provincial Army. He was always victorious. He invaded the entire southern State of Yue. The Army under his guidance won every War.
Once his troops were once outnumbered 30,000 to 200,000, yet
he was unbeaten. Many successes followed and continued after his death. Some considered his death to be another
of his deceptions.
Even over 100 years later, his descendant, Sun Bing, also
lead the troops to victory.
As a mark of respect, Sun Wu's name was changed to Sun Tzu
as a sign of his status - as a Master of the Philosophy of War.
