Written two centuries ago by a Prussian military thinker, this is the most frequently cited, the most controversial, and in many ways, the most modern book on warfare ...

On Wellington : a critique of Waterloo by Carl von Clausewitz( Book )

32 editions published between 1835 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 353 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Clausewitz, the Western world's most renown military theorist, participated in the Waterloo campaign as a senior staff officer in the Prussian Army. His appraisal, offered here in an up-to-date and readable translation, criticized the Duke of Wellington's actions. Lord Liverpool sent his translation of the manuscript to Wellington, who pronounced it a 'lying work'. The translated commentary was quickly buried in Wellington's private papers, where it languished for a century and a half. Now published for the first time in English, Hofschr?er brings Clausewitz's critique back into view with thorough annotation and contextual explanation"--Dust jkt
Clausewitz on strategy : inspiration and insight from a master strategist by Carl von Clausewitz( Book )

6 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 308 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the role of strategic theory, " ... all principles, rules, and methods increasingly lack universality and absolute truth the moment they become a positive doctrine. They are there to present themselves for use. Judgment must always be free to determine whether or not they are suitable. Criticism must never use these results of theory as laws and standards, but only as a person acting in war should also do: as aids to judgment"

1 edition published in 1983 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Om den berømte Clausewitz "the genius of war", hvis bog Vom Kriege (On War) (Om krigen) regnes for en af de helt store militærhistoriske klassikere. Den franske professor Aron's bog fra 1976 vakte en del opsigt da den udkom, og foreligger her i en engelsk oversættelse. I bogen revurderes Clausewitz's tænkning og hans krigsteorier "as a mean of political analysis, of great importance and interest to contemporary historians and to all who are concerned with military and political affairs."
