Sun Tzu was the Nostradamus of warfare and his book, Art of War was written 2,400 years ago. It is still the ultimate how-to guide for winning at war. Weaves together the epic story of Sun Tzu himself, and relives a war in which his tactics posthumously saved a city from defeat, a victory at war that paved the way toward the unification of China. An emotional, epic and ultimately visual understanding of Sun Tzu's lessons, telling the story of other great battles in history, from Rome to the Civil War, WWII, and present day, that help illustrate that on the battlefields of war, people who understand strategy are the most dangerous weapons of all.

PBS has done it again very well done documentary. This movie was interesting, informative, and worse seeing!! I recommend this movie for all to see. Well worth the price of admission to any theater.

Very well done documentary. It brings the principle of Art of War to live.

A great deal more about "american" wars than Sun Tzu. Typically History Channel light-weight approach which is a bit disappointing.
