The Art of War: The Chinese approach to warfare 2205 BCE 280 CE is a source book for Warhammer Ancient Battles.

China has the longest continuous civilization in history and was finally unified by the First Emperor in 221 BCE. The Warring States period was over, and Qin victorious! Yet only 16 years later, the Qin Dynasty was in turmoil, the Emperor dead and all that would remain of his legacy would be the silent warriors of Xian- the Terracotta army.

This source book contains an historical overview that covers the principle military events and developments of Chinese culture from small bands of tribal warriors right up to the mighty Imperial armies that dominated Asia.

Featured within this book are detailed army lists including:
Shang Dynasty
Zhou Dynasty
Warring States
Eastern Steppe Nomads
Han Dynasty
Red Eyebrow Rebels
Yellow Scarves Religious Cultists
Three Kingdoms

Using these army lists and variants within them you can create over 34 different varieties of armies from early Chinese history!

Other resources included are scenarios, battles, a campaign system and Ruses for use in your games, as well as advice for modeling Chinese armies and terrain in full color.

The Art of War also contains a full-color section portraying the armies of the time and a wealth of illustrations and maps.
