Sun Tzu

Sun Tzu

Before hiring Sun Tzu, the King of Wu commanded him to train his harem of 180 concubines into soldiers. Sun Tzu divided them into two companies, appointed two company commanders and gave an order to which they responded by giggling. He then ordered the execution of the king's two favored concubines, to the king's protests, in that he had to carry out his mission of training them. Both the captains were killed and the squads then performed perfectly.
