S&A - Chapter XVII

“In naval warfare,” said John, remembering a well-known book, “two things are important; to know exactly what you want to do and to do it in the manner that your enemy least expects.”

I don't think this is exactly what is said in 'The Art of War' by Sun Tzu. Was it that book, or another, that Ransome was referring to?
