Description



ENGLISH LANGUAGE TRANSLATION
The Academy of Military Sciences of the People’s Liberation Army of China issued a revised edition of its “The Science of Military Strategy” (SMS) in 2013. A Chinese-language copy was obtained by Secrecy News but I have not found an English language copy, so I decided to translate it into English myself. I am not a scholar of the Chinese language, but hopefully you will excuse my illiteracy as this is the only English version available. I believe the translation is faithful to the original, however I have taken some poetic license in order to improve the readability. Some of the colloquial expressions such as “two legged losers” (page 210) and use of a “private white hair to attack and defend the network” (page 196) went completely over my head, so I didn’t make any attempt to edit them. I decided to limit the translated text on any given page in the original text to the same numbered page in this book. So, if you are unsure of the meaning of some of my edits – and, you happen to be a Chinese scholar – you will know what page to look for in the original Chinese edition. I must apologize because unfortunately, some text and sometimes complete pages of the copy I obtained were not legible, making accurate translation impossible. Where this occurs, I left that area blank so as to highlight that something is missing and added the word “Unintelligible”.

At the last minute I decided to also include the text of “China’s Military Strategy” that was released by the State Council Information Office of the People’s Republic of China in 2015. You will find that at the end of this book. It provides additional context to the 2013 document and should further clarify some of the meaning.

Speaking about the Chinese language version of this book and the Science of Campaigns (2006), a team of authors from RAND Corporation who worked on a 2015 report stated:
"To the best of our knowledge, these are the most authoritative publicly available sources on Chinese military thinking about the campaign level of warfare."
