This exceptional book contains 13 chapters describing the most significant aspects of warfare, military strategies and tactics, and was considered the most influential text in East Asia for an extended period. This old, extraordinary book was translated into several languages and inspired many nations in different centuries of war history.
Over time, there have been several historical war periods and each silver figurine from the Art of War series depicts a certain warrior that will be described below:
The ancient Egyptian warriors were a military force united under their Pharaoh - the God King. Although its geographic surroundings naturally defended Egypt, Egyptians fought with nomadic tribes and other intrusions to protect the security of their civilization. The Egyptian warriors succeeded in protecting their country due to their innovative weaponry, military hierarchy and various units which developed during the Old, Middle and New Kingdom periods.
The ancient Egyptian military, similar to all armed forces, was the result of the culture that created it. In spite of that fact that it was not militarily driven, Egyptian society could be extremely reactionary. The Egyptian militarily promptly adjusted to adversary weapons and innovations, turning into a powerhouse of the old world and one of the colossal military powers of history. The most notorious Egyptian warriors include Thutmose III, Hatshepsut, Ramses II (“the great”), and perhaps the most prolific and commonly known of them all, King Tut.
The Spartans were the only full-time warriors in the Ancient Greece. They began training at the age of six and by twelve were already treated as young warriors. After turning eighteen, they were considered true Spartan soldiers. This ancient army is believed to be one of the most powerful ones, as the only rest from training a Spartan warrior ever got was when he had to go fight in war.
Ancient Greek fighters emerged as chief warriors of their traditional world, where fighting was seen as an essential part of their society. Through each glorious battle, they consummated substantial infantry strategies including the introduction of the Spartan Phalanx technique which led to the eventual demise of Persia, the super-force of their day. Legendary warriors such as the likes of Alexander the Great, and Achilles fought to protect their glory, and against injustice but more importantly they safeguarded the freedom of their people fighting both at home and abroad to vanquish adversaries. The mysterious and thrilling legends of the honor-driven gods and warriors in Ancient Greece, from the labors of Hercules to the Trojan Wars have been a pillar in popular culture for as long as we one can remember. Bullion Exchanges is pleased to introduce silver Greek warriors – setting the new standard in cast bars.
Without doubts, Romans are one of the most acknowledged ancient warriors, with a vast military history that spanned centuries. The Roman legion is well-known as a disciplined military force with remarkable battles and a wide list of conquests, which resulted from a combined strength of arms.
Roman fighters regarded themselves as “soldiers”, not as warriors like their foes. This is a telling indication of their polished skill. The Roman Empire, the most exalted empire, was driven by the animosity of its people. Conceivably it was the grit or barbarity of the Roman Soldiers that the brought them constant warfare, but those very fundamental elements or traits were crucial to survival in their unpleasant time and place.
Julius Caesar, is markedly the most popular Roman to have ever lived. He was a splendid government official, essayist, statesman, and obviously, a flat out virtuoso military general, and the most incredible of any Roman.
The Chinese are one of the longest continuous civilizations, and their military history dates back to the dawn of warfare. The Chinese’s famous general and military strategist Sun Tzu is credited as the author of The Art of War, the influential book that affected the military philosophy across the whole globe. This masterpiece on warfare strategy had a tremendous impact on the many military forces, emphasizing the mastery of the Chinese warriors in defending, unifying and expanding their territories. The Chinese soldiers benefitted from military innovation and rich theory traditions, making them one of the most feared civilizations in the history of warfare.
The infamous seafaring invaders from Scandinavia, the Vikings, were renowned Norse Warriors due to their ferocious attitude. The Vikings instigated fear in their European neighbors due to their aggressive fighting style based on the use of warhammers and battle axes. The most notable Viking warrior figures were the berserks, the fearless warriors that fought shirtless, wearing only bear or wolf skins. They were often referred as being uncontrollable, trance-like fury champions and their behavior was highly influenced by Norse mythology and beliefs.
The Gladiators, which means “swordsman” in Latin, were Roman slave warriors who fought with each other in huge arenas, entertaining thousands of Romans. The Gladiators also endured violent confrontations with condemned criminals and wild animals. Even though some gladiators were volunteers risking their lives and social status, most of them were slaves whose fate was decided either by death or by the crowd. Only a few Gladiators passed the age of 30 and survived more than 10 matches, and became known as legendary warriors.
Pirates are referred as violent criminals and robbers of the sea. The earliest document relating to pirates was written in the 14th century BC and described a group of ocean raiders that attacked the Mediterranean and Aegean ships in narrow channels. Their names originated from the Latin “pirate” which means “sea robber.” Pirates stole not only goods and weapons but also boys and girls and sold them as slaves. Just like Vikings, Pirates were feared warriors in the water and were elaborately trained and equipped to stand against any enemies. These warriors can be still encountered in our days in certain ocean and sea areas.
The Samurai Warriors have been the war force of the Japanese feudal nation for over 700 years. Before becoming military nobility of this far-east nation, Samurais were the private bodyguards of the rich landowning clans.

Samurai warriors were known as highly devoted to their warrior code, involving honor, loyalty, and ethics.

The Mongol horde is also referred as an imposing war machine of barbarous horsemen that rampaged across lands with a far more advanced organizational capacity than their opponent armies. They controlled the largest land territory and were one of the few who successfully invaded and conquered Russia during winter time.

During this time, several crucial conflicts were held between the Native American Tribes and the people occupying their lands: the infamous outlaws, gangs, cowboys, and gunslingers. Over this period over 200 Native American Tribes were destroyed.
The Napoleonic Wars were a series of crucial confrontations between the French Empire, commanded by Napoleon I, and various European powers who formed several coalitions. During these conflicts, the Napoleonic warriors defeated the coalitions until the disastrous invasion of Russia and the later exile of Napoleon to the Elba island. Nevertheless, these warriors were led by a true mastermind of military strategy, with Napoleon’s tactics still analyzed and marvelled at by historians today.
