Some factual errors

Giving or taking 100 years isn't a big deal considering we're talking about stories that are over 2,000 years old. But when we can be accurate, we should be. The time period was 500BC, not 400BC. It was not the Warring States period but the late Spring and Autumn period. Sun Tzu did not serve under a Warlord, but under a King (King Helü of the State of Wu).

The beheading story isn't in The Art of War. It was a historical entry written about Sun Tzu by Sima Qian.

Beheading Story

It isn't in the main text no, but it is added to most copies in the form of the Preface, as an incite into Sun Tzu's mind.
