Art of War
All warfare is based on deception. Therefore when capable of attacking feign incapacity; when active in moving troops feign inactivity. When near the enemy make it seem that you are far away; when far away make it seem that you are near. - Sun Tzu Sun Tzu was the Nostradamus of warfare and his book Art of War written 2,400 years ago is still the ultimate how-to guide for winning at war. This feature-length HISTORY special weaves together the epic story of Sun Tzu himself and a war that occurred soon after his death in which a city was saved using his tactics paving the way toward the unification of China. Art of War is 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 the present day that help to illustrate that on the battlefields of war people who understand strategy are the most dangerous weapons of all.
