Clausewitz in English : the reception of Clausewitz in Britain and America, 1815-1945 by Christopher Bassford( Book )

20 editions published between 1994 and 2002 in English and held by 413 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The ideas of the Prussian military philosopher Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831) underlie most modern military thought. This intellectual history of the reception of Carl von Clausewitz's military theories in Britain and the United States thus provides an important and revealing examination of the evolution of military thinking in both countries. In the first comprehensive study of the literature, Christopher Bassford argues that the impact of Clausewitzian theory - particularly the classic On War, published in 1832 - has been widely misunderstood, and he follows the trail of Clausewitzian influence from early-Victorian Britain to 1945. He examines the attitudes and interpretations of a large array of commentators, ranging from soldiers like the Duke of Wellington, "Wully" Robertson, and Dwight Eisenhower to theorists like Julian Corbett, to journalists and historians like Spenser Wilkinson and Basil Liddell Hart, to a wide range of reformers, special pleaders, and propagandists. By exploring the changing ways in which Clausewitz's ideas have been received by these various groups of commentators, Bassford also offers some penetrating lessons concerning the manner in which ideas are ignored, acclaimed, rejected, distorted, or re-transmitted. In bringing this literature to light, Clausewitz in English makes a persuasive case for Clausewitzian theory having had a broad impact on the development of British and American military thinking. It will be of interest to a wide range of military and intellectual historians

Om Clausewitz's krigsteorier og betragtninger om krige, krigsvæsen, krigskunst, m.m. og deres indflydelse på engelsk-amerikanske militærhistorikere og engelsk-amerikansk militær tænkning. Forfatterens afhandling med henblik på en doktordisputats "traced the growth of Clausewitz studies in England and America from the end of the Napoleonic Wars to the dawn of the Atomic era. It demonstrates that the Anglo-American study of Clausewitz has a longer history, involved a larger readership, and assumed a quite different charecter that historians have thus far acknowledged."
