So it is said that if you know your enemies and know yourself, you will fight without danger in battles. If you only know yourself, but not your opponent, you may win or may lose. If you know neither yourself nor your enemy, you will always endanger yourself. oh yes goo dbook

The Art of War is simply amazing. It's completely useful and relevant to any kind of warfare in any period of time, even today 2000 years later.

I'd also recommend machiaveli's Ruler.

Very interesting insight at europe. Not so much how to get there, but what to do once you managed to.

The Prince...yes very interesting book but hard to apply to the present, however it is very good historical document on history of Italy.
