Fascinating to see that his teachings have remained true for
M. Ferguson | 09/10/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I found this History channel look at 'The Art of War' simply fascinating! I can't say anything to the quality of the dvd. I'm just purchasing it now. I kind of stumbled into this when it aired a week or two ago. I couldn't stop watching. It was amazing to see how the Civil War, Vietnam, and World War II were fought and ultimately won/lost based on the teachings of Sun Tzu. I only wished they would have included Iraq as well. Also intriguing was the mystery sourounding Sun Tzu himself. I definately recommend this for anyone even remotely interested in stuff like this. It's interesting from an entertainment point of view, and you might even learn something!"
Stellar depiction of Sun Tzu's THE ART OF WAR

"The History Channel has done it once again! It has produced another stellar documentary. This is top-notch entertainment. "Art of War" examines three major American war conflicts: Vietnam, WWII, and the Civil War. How they are won or lost? That's the question these scholars and the principles of THE ART OF WAR will answer. It's all very fascinating! The battle scenes are exciting; the visuals stunning. The narrative is gripping. Awesome music! Despite historical debates regarding Sun Tzu and THE ART OF WAR, there's no denying their significance and influence for wartime success--even in every day life. For readings of THE ART OF WAR try the following translations:

The Art of War by Sun Tzu and Thomas Cleary
The Art of War by Sun Tzu - Special Edition by Sun Tzu and Lionel Giles
The Art of War: Sun Zi's Military Methods (Translations from the Asian Classics) by Sun Zi and Victor H. Mair"
A Must Buy...

"I will make this review short.. to avoid redundancy you can view the product information and other reviews.
As a student of military history and a former grunt, I can say this video puts it all together, excellent visuals, clear story telling and narration.
Sun Tzu's manual comes to life here.
Of course there is violence, death, this is The Art Of War, however, nothing most of you haven't seen on the nightly news.
I do take issue with those who say the USA lost the war( the narrator states this) in Vietnam.. NOT so. We were never defeated on the battlefield. We were defeated politically at home.. we lost the will to stay the course. This Video relates to the battlefield. This video does an excellent job in it's full presentation.. A Must Buy"
