The Way of the Warrior Collection – Box Set

Box Set of 3 Books

Three classic texts from China and Japan on strategies and techniques for warfare and conflict that span more than 2500 years.

The Art of War, written by ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu in the 6th century BC, is the most widely published work on warfare and military strategy and was consulted by Napoleon and Mao Zedong among others. Covering all aspects of warfare, Sun Tzu promoted strategic flexibility, quick thinking on the battlefield, the use of intelligence, and understanding the enemy’s intentions.

The Book of Five Rings dates from the mid-17th century and was conceived by a Japanese swordsman, Miyamoto Musashi. Though it covers swordsmanship and the martial arts, the text’s discussion of how to deal with conflict has been used more widely than its author originally intended. He explains that the principles described can be applied to a two-person duel as well as a full-scale battle, and emphasizes the need to perfect the techniques to improve control and discipline.

In The Way of the Samurai, originally published as Bushido, the Soul of Japan, Inazo Nitobe explores the moral code of the Japanese warrior class, from the importance of politeness rituals to the ultimate self-sacrifice in war: hara-kiri or suicide. He describes the importance of chivalric principles amid brutual warfare, ideals that still resonate in modern Japanese society and the wider world.
