A Machiavellian look at the "rules of war"
on January 6, 2016
This book offers a very Machiavellian look at strategy, with an ethos of "the end justifies the means" and the attitude that anything anyone is ever trying to achieve is a war, and can benefit from the perspective of these "rules of war" - a very neutral, objective analysis of the strategies' effectiveness, without regard for their morality, hence an often disturbing book. Valuable perspectives, but one would have to be sociopathic to implement all these strategies.
