This book discusses the concept of using water as weapon and using water to substitute for soldier, as well as the theories and expounds of using water as weapon from the ancient books on the art of war.  Based on a great deal of studying on literature and data of historical wars, the book deals with about two hundred important historical events relating to offensive wars using water as weapon, and defensive wars using water to substitute for soldier in Chinese history from legendary age, about 3,000 B.C, to 1949. The background, process, result, engineering construction and significance in the history of each war were introduced as possible as detail. The book also introduces ten types of offensive battles by using water as weapon as following: inundating farmland, flooding city by diverting water, deliberate breaking dike or damming river to obstruct enemy, cut off water supply, poisoning in water, attacking enemy when crossing a river, flooding enemy crossing river by breaking dammed river water, attacking enemy by seizing opportunity of flooding, flooding enemy’s camp and breaking water to flash enemy.
In addition, the book focus on studying defensive measures by constructing hydraulic engineering to defend against enemy and using nature water to help defensing, , their applications in the frontier guarding, city and national defense in Chinese history.
