On War

Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831) is generally viewed as the greatest writer on the art of war, and this masterpiece, although unfinished at the time of his death, is the most systematic study of war. Nuclear strategist Bernard Brodie said of Clausewitz' study, "His is not simply the greatest, but the only great book about war." Reading and understanding Clausewitz is not easy, but it can be rewarding and relevant. This is the only translation worth reading, and the index in the paperback edition is useful.


Clausewitz: A Very Short Introduction

In this brief and brilliant work, which is both a biography and a guide to Clausewitz' thoughts and influence, Howard reminds us that, above all, Clausewitz was a professional soldier writing for his colleagues and not for a professor teaching at a university.


Clausewitz and the State

Paret, a noted military historian, has written a complex, comprehensive, and definitive study of Clausewitz and his theories.
