In Win, Lose, or Die, he shares his insights on how to succeed in any conflict, from small-scale skirmishes to full-blown wars. Gardner starts by examining the different ways that people can be influenced, and offers tactics for building relationships of trust and cooperation with your opponents. He then turns to the question of how to win in battle, from the use of force to winning the support of the local population. Gardner provides essential advice on everything from propaganda to seizing key terrain. With clear, step-by-step instructions and real-world examples, Win, Lose, or Die is the essential guide for anyone who wants to win in any conflict.; 8vo; 319 pages; MR, Price check?
