    It's not me who wrote it : ). Have no clue who this 'creonte' fellow is (Renato seems a strong option). But would gladly read the whole package if it ever comes out : D.

    Absolute, total geography fail. Too bad the edit-button vanished. Has to be China, off course. On the other hand, the contents of that book would have worked in Japan, too.

    Somehow war-philosophy always links with Japan in my head. Maybe the bad influence of all those years wasting my time with karate.

    Also the treaties were written sometime between the 6th century BC and the 2nd century BC, not the 15th century AD.

    I wrote 5th century, not 15th century. Although it is doubted that Sun Tsu wrote this treatise (or that he even existed), it has most likely been that century in which it was either put together or written.

    It was written by Faixa Rua on the EFN Sports forum, that's his posting style - I recognise a lot of the quotes.
