An analysis of the North's victory during the Civil war that relates the strategies employed by General Grant to the maxims espoused by Sun Tzu in "The Art of War"; Sun Tzu's dictates and the North's winning strategy.
From the Paper:"Military strategists have been operating in Sun Tzu's shadow for millennia. Whether the strategists in a particular conflict drew from the Chinese sage's work directly is almost irrelevant; his theories apply to every conflict from the most basic confrontation between medieval powers, to the most complicated modern scenario. This paper will analyze the North's victory during the American war in order to demonstrate how Sun Tzu's principles were directly related to the North's winning strategy, as outlined in Russel Weigley's seminal book "The American Way of War"."
