I found this book, awhile searching up my favorite book (which I have a copy, and an e-book copy of), and thought you all might be interested.

It is partially written by none other than Zhuge Liang himself, recently translated into English. They say Zhuge Liang only trusted his successor, Jiang Wei, with his secrets of war, but it seemed that trust went sour. This is the book that's all about war, and KongMing's tactics used in the thick of it.


I haven't read it myself, but Zhuge Liang specialized in fire tactics, so it should be really interesting! Also, if you want to check out my favorite book, check out the "Better Together" section. :)

When is the book coming out?
Who exactly was Zhuge Liang, a famous Chinese general? Sorry, I don't know much Chinese history. :(

Book is already out. :-s


Oh, and Zhuge Liang is a strategist of ancient China (around 100AD-190AD). He assisted Liu Bei in his campeign against Wei and Wu, to unite China under the banner of the Han, which was eventually named Shu-Han. Play some Dynasty Warriors, you'll figure it out. :)



Which brings me to another notice!! DW4 is coming out for computer!!!!

Loner, if you are reffering to the Master of War to lived during the 7 Warring States period, then you are right. The book is mostly written by him, but Zhuge Liang has added comments, and other essays and such along with the work of Sun Zu (I think there's no T, but I'm not sure).
