One of Sun Tzu’s strategies for war commands Generals to place their soldiers on “Death’s Ground” where they either have to successfully fight or die. The American troops fighting on Omaha Beach, on D-Day, June 6, 1944, is an example of this principle at work in history. Shortly after landing on Omaha Beach, the American casualties were so horrific and the leadership was so decimated, the American battle plan ceased to exist. The only way the American soldiers were going to get off that beach was adapt and find a way to win the battle, or they would leave the beach in a body bag. The Americans adapted, developed a new plan and fought their way inland.
This principle of Sun Tzu describes how and why viruses become so dangerous, as being placed on “Death’s Ground”, adapting and mutating is how a virus lives to fight another day and what makes them so difficult to treat.
