And we must win.

In this powerful manifesto, Dr. Gorka explains the basic principles that have guided strategists since Sun Tzu penned The Art of War in the sixth century B.C. To defeat your enemy, you must know him . But that's the last thing liberal elites are interested in. Willful ignorance about our adversary--whether it's Russia, China, or the global jihadi movement--has been crippling. Tearing off America's politically correct blindfold, Dr. Gorka clarifies who our foes are and what makes them tick.

An eight-year vacation from geopolitical reality under Obama left our country dangerously weakened. Dr. Gorka addresses the pressing questions we face as we rebuild under President Trump's leadership:

- What are the most serious threats to American security?
- How are they different from the threats of the past?
- What can we do to counter these threats?
- How can we achieve the "perfect victory" of vanquishing our enemies without mortal combat?
