連環計/Lian Huan Ji – Interlocking Stratagems

原文:將多兵眾,不可以敵,使其自累,以殺其勢。在師中吉,承天寵也。

Original Text: When faced with many generals & numerous soldiers, you may not be able to withstand them, cause them to wear themselves out in order to reduce their momentum. Within the midst of the army, good fortune, he receives Heaven’s favor. 

解析:敵人兵力強大,不可和它硬拚,應當運用計謀,使它們自相牽制,消弱其戰鬥力。將帥英明,指揮正確,克敵制勝就像有天助一般。

Analysis: When the enemy troops are powerful you should not obstinately go all out, instead you ought to use a stratagem to make them impede one another, weakening or eliminating their fighting strength. A Commander in Chief who is wise & leads properly is able to overcome the enemy & control victory as if he has Heaven’s assistance.
