Jay Blakemore masters RP Models’ new limited-edition 75mm Sun Tzu release to bring a legendary Chinese general to life
Sun Tzu was a general, military strategist and philosopher who, according to tradition, lived in China from 544-496 BC. He was credited with the authorship of The Art of War, a military treatise on the philosophy of tactics and warfare that is still considered by many to be the greatest work of its kind ever written. Indeed, it’s taught and studied at military academies to this day, and influenced many of history’s greatest military tacticians. He was actually born Sun Wu and was known by those outside his family by the name Changqing; the honorific suffix of ‘Tzu’ was bestowed later in his life and identified him as ‘Master’ Sun.
