The Art of War (Original Edition and Annotated Edition) - Sun Tzu
Sun Tzu is one of the most famous authors in history, and The Art of War remains the most famous military treatise ever written, but it is unclear whether the man himself ever existed. That said, historians believe the man did exist, and that the famous treatise was written for King Ho Lu, who Sun Tzu may have served as a general in the 5th or 6th century B.C. The military maxims, while timeless, do not refer to any concrete time in history.
This compilation of the original, unabridged edition, along with the annotated edition translated by Lionel Giles, includes dozens of images.
