Since the dawn of his existence, this creature, this fierce and violent beast has been obsessed with conflict. Like an incurable disease – an addictive drug, war has terrified, teased and taunted, repelled, and fascinated. The power of conquest, the lure and craving for wealth have fashioned the ultimate Beast of War – Man. In his own words throughout the centuries, Man speaks to us of War – its art, its poetic strategy, its allure and its tragedy. Come with us now and listen to the words of our own kind as they teach us how to be warriors.

A Book Review from Amazon.com

When going into Officer’s Training, or any military or martial endeavor for that matter, it is suggested that one reads several books on war, strategy, and military philosophy. The usual suggestion at the top of the list is the Art Of War. Another helpful book is the Book of Five Rings. The Warrior’s Handbook: A Volume Containing – Warrior’s Heart Revealed, The Art of War, The Sayings of Wutzu, Tao Te Ching, The Book of Five Rings, and Behold, The Second Horseman (Quotes on War) is a book that is the combination of these books plus a book that lists hundreds of various quotes and observations about war. It also includes a good translation of the Tao Te Ching, and an odd book on a little known martial art style called Shinsei Hapkido, which has a basic philosophy of “evade the attack, invade the defenses, and control the enemy.” This could be a primer for how to live a more successful life.

When preparing to study, do so as a warrior.
When preparing for war, do so as a scholar.
