    • The idea was to leave a hole for the enemy to flee because an enemy without escape fights harder because he is already dead

    • “Throw your soldiers into position from whence there is no escape, and they will prefer death to flight”- Sun Tzu. Basically, If you cut off all means of your enemy’s escape, they will fight to the last man. But if you give them an avenue of escape, they are more likely to break and run.

    • To elaborate, if you leave an exit for your enemy the likelihood they will retreat or surrender increases dramatically. If they feel like escape is impossible they will fight to the last man because they are already dead.

    • You gotta give them some sort of escape. If they’re not focused on escape, they’ll fight harder. Have y’all seen deer attacks? Brutal with the same scenario.

    • They both have valid reasons to be done. Sun Tzu is to defeat an army. Caesar is to destroy an army. They both have pros and cons. A defeated army can reform, but a destroyed one cannot. But a defeating an army is usually quicker and less costly than destroying one.

    • Also have to remember that they perfected war for their area. While ceasar had to deal with other empires and massive civil wars where no expense was spared. Sun tzu had to deal with regional war lords so he had to find fast and effective ways to defeat his opponents to be prepared for the next war
