Book Description

In the fifth century BC, Sun Tzu wrote: In peace prepare for war, in war prepare for peace. The art of war is of vital importance to the state. It is a matter of life and death. A road either to safety or ruin. Hence it is a subject of inquiry which can on no account be neglected... In the twentieth century: I truly believe that if our military and political leaders in recent times had studied this work of genius, Vietnam could not have happened as it happened; we would not have lost the war in Korea (we lost it because we did not achieve victory); the But of Pigs could not have occurred; the hostage fiasco in lran would not have come to pass; the British Empire would not have been dismembered; and, in all probability, World Wars I and II would have been avoided...

About the Author


Screenwriter, director, producer, and novelist, James Clavell, was born on October 10, 1924, in Sydney, Australia. Clavells full name was Charles Edmund DuMaresq de Clavelle. Though he wrote screenplays for such highly-acclaimed films as The Fly, The Great Escape, and To Sir With Love, Clavell is best known for his best-selling, grand novels. The novels, which are set in the Far East, include King Rat, Tai-pan, Shogun, Noble House, and Gai-Jin. Remarkable for their scrupulous attention to cultural detail and their innovative plots, Clavells work has been compared to that of Charles Dickens. Clavell died on September 7, 1994, at the age of 69.
