Deception in War

The most potent weapon in any soldier's arsenal is deception. That you don't hear much about deception in warfare tells you something about how elusive and apparently rare this item is. Yet, as the ancient Chinese adage puts it, "There can never be enough deception in war." Sun-tzu went further, saying, "All warfare is based on deception."
