In the history of China, the elements of combined wars have often included important components of “conflict and war” with neighbors. Ancient Chinese rulers basically used four methods to neutralize their problems and challenges. The first approach was to use the barbarians to fight the barbarians; In this case, by using wild mercenaries and creating a strategic alliance, the neighbors were crushed in the shortest time.

Contemporary confrontation is called (diplomatic war). It means neutralizing unfriendly governments through public diplomacy and creating corruption among alliances and partnerships formed by them.

The second approach is bribery and great respect to the enemies to make them return from attacking China. The current approach; Profitable business and financial aid is considered a key and important motivation.

The third approach is a strong and planned deterrence that China designs and implements to prevent the invasion of foreign forces. Aggression and military operations occur when all efforts do not achieve the desired results.

The principles and purposes of ancient China are still effective and effective for the country’s policy makers, its elites, and its military.

The seven classic military classes of ancient China is a wide and completely heterogeneous set of strategic lessons that is considered a key and effective reference in the education of its political and military elites in different periods such as the warring governments of the past.

Although Sun Tzu’s Art of War is one of the most popular books in the international world, it is called wu.zi and 36 other titles, but; It has proven that there have been many sources for “military wisdom and philosophy” over the centuries, originating from the military experts of the People’s Republic of China.

Classical military literature includes theoretical foundations that cover the entire range of operations. Simple tactical principles and complex methods of organization in the field of command and control of armed conflicts, psychological operations, misinformation, maneuver, strategic power, intelligence, destruction of the enemy, deception, regulation and limitations, evaluation of the enemy and the use of militias in war can be evaluated and investigated

Because the field of war is a combination of new parts and its various components can streamline new fields and put new concepts and professional solutions in front of military and political academies, so it has a special attraction, although in Ancient China or in some other countries used methods of combined and cognitive warfare, but in the present era, due to the progress of various sciences and the achievement of new methods, the components of combined warfare are presented in a new scientific format and the same concepts It is new, which creates a lot of attraction.
