Everyone talks about The Art of War by Sun Tzu as if they had read it, but have you really? This book provides the (translated) source documents for five strategic thinkers (Sun Tzu, Vegetius, De Saxe, Frederick, and Napoleon) with only the bare minimum of editorial comment, and lets you make your own judgement. Now that I've read them, I have to agree that it's true, we are doomed to repeat the past, but only because people don't change.
