The Art of Victory

begins with a single act...is the principal goal of a society...is never created or sustained by weakness...can never be total, and this is its beauty...cannot be bought or sold; it can only be won....

Not since Sun-tzu's The Art of War has a blueprint for success offered so much to so many, with timeless lessons for personal, corporate, and societal victory in our age of constant change and inevitable conflict.

Award-winning historian and global strategist Gregory R. Copley draws from decades of experience advising political and military leadership to offer a holistic and balanced view of simple success strategies, with 28 maxims for survival and prosperity in the advancing wave of social, technological, and environmental transformation we now face.

"The Art of Victory is an eye-opening study of the strategic realities of man's eternal challenges. . . . Gregory Copley, our only conscious grand strategist and exponent of psychological strategy, provides vital new insights into the key challenges facing us today: terrorism and globalism. If Sun-tzu's The Art of War is the marshal's baton in the knapsack of every soldier, then the beautifully written The Art of Victory should be the secret strength of all who wish to lead society." -- Yossef Bodansky, author of the New York Times bestsellers Bin Laden: The Man Who Declared War on America and The Secret History of the Iraq War



"Gregory Copley has defined in this unique and important book the scope of what victory really is, and how it can be sustained and nurtured." -- General Alexander M. Haig, Jr., former NATO Supreme Allied Commander, and former U.S. Secretary of State
