An army which is complete and conquers fearlessly
Is foremost among all a king's possessions.
Only seasoned soldiers can confront the desperate adversity
Of decimating attacks with intrepid tenacity.
So what if an army of rats roars like the raging sea?
The mere hiss of a cobra will deaden their din.
A true army is one which has a long tradition of valor
And knows neither defeat nor desertion.
That is unquestionably truly an army which stands together,
Even when faced with death's fury.
Valor, honor, trustworthiness, and a tradition nobly upheld-
These four are an army's protective armor.
The well-trained army will withstand every onslaught,
Then outflank and storm the foe.
Even without a winning offense and defense,
A well-appointed army may win renown acclaim.
An army will prevail as long as there is
No attrition, no animosity and no afflictions.
Even with an abundance Though it enlists legions of troops,
An army cannot endure without commanders.
