Fire and Water: The Art of Incendiary and Aquatic Warfare in China
Ralph D. Sawyer (au)
China’s history is replete with intriguing examples of incendiary & aquatic warfare used to turn the tide of battle. By sending in torch-laden oxen to stun & overtake a more powerful enemy or causing an enemy’s camp to flood, ancient Chinese strategists developed methods of warfare never before employed. Here, Sawyer traces the evolution of incendiary warfare in ancient China from antiquity through the intro. of gunpowder weapons. Outlines the development of aquatic methodology, presenting techniques used as well as examples of the implementation of these new ways of war in battle. Examines the employment of incendiary attacks in naval conflict & explores the means for overcoming riverine obstacles, such as floating bridges.
