The collected books discuss war related issues that occurred prior to 1945, so the value of this package (the 3 books) rest mostly in the historical perspective.
Although I had some of them as separate items or partially discussed as part of other texts (i.e. Masters of War or The Art of War for Executives: Ancient Knowledge for Today's Business Professional), I wanted to have access to the whole package as a reference material (as a PMI PMP, I am interested in developing connections between the art of war and the art of project management).
So, if you are trying to (as myself) have access to these books on strategy for reference purposes, this package is fantastic. If you want a discussion or a comparison or a relation with current affairs or business strategy they are not your package.
