The Legend of Heroes Trails of Cold Steel III
Nintendo Switch Ι Genre: Train a new generation of heroes
War and Peace, The Art of War, The Prince, and On War; these are some of the most notable works about the philosophy about war and its relationship with human nature.
Since the dawn of civilization, wars have been fought in two ways; with the muscles and with the mind.
For example, in The Art of War, written during the 5th century BC, the Chinese philosopher Sun Tzu said that “The art of war is of vital importance to the State. It is a matter of life and death, a road either to safety or to ruin.” Divided into 13 chapters who eviscerate every aspect of military strategy; this manual includes a big number of precious information about how to be victorious in a dispute. During the millennia; many personalities have treasured all Sun Tzu’s teachings, applying them on the battlefields. Just to name a few, Takeda Shingen, Võ Nguyên Giáp, and Norman Schwarzkopf Jr. have used this opus as inspiration during their careers. But, its cultural influence made itself felt even in the daily life activities of companies, sports teams, and even simple shops.
Jus ad bellum
Obviously, even if this is a very popular book, it’s not the only one; indeed, during the centuries hundreds of generals and strategists have compiled their own treatise; so, in the vast world of military studies, we can learn the way of thinking of the most important personalities of human history. From Julius Caesar (Commentarii de Bello Gallico) to T. E. Lawrence (Seven Pillars of Wisdom) passing through the Indian teacher Chanakya (Arthashastra), the Italian Renaissance diplomat Niccolò Machiavelli (Dell’arte Della Guerra), the Prussian general Carl von Clausewitz (Vom Kriege), and many other ones who left a trail in the field of history and philosophy.
Each author gave his personal opinion about what the war is; speculating on its causes, objectives, and consequences. There are as many schools of thoughts as many people live on Earth, but one thing is certain; even if not present in our nature; war is one of the most favorite activities of humankind; indeed the Greek philosopher Heraclitus declared that “war is the father of all things”. Even in-game industry, this cultural heritage is present in several titles, but one of the most prominent series is undoubtedly The Legend of Heroes!
We could be heroes…
