Art of war ( Visual )
3 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 411 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Sun Tzu's legendary victory manual, Art of War, was written 2,400 years ago, yet is still considered by many as the ultimate how-to guide for winning at war. "Weaves together the epic story of Sun Tzu himself, and relives a war in which his tactics posthumously saved a city from defeat, a victory at war that paved the way toward the unification of China. ... An emotional, epic and ultimately visual understanding of Sun Tzu's lessons, telling the story of other great battles in history, from Rome to the Civil War, WWII, and present day, that help illustrate that on the battlefields of war, people who understand strategy are the most dangerous weapons of all."
