On war by Carl von Clausewitz( Book )

39 editions published between 1908 and 2013 in English and held by 338 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Carl von Clausewitz's theories of war have influenced generations of military leaders and policy makers throughout the Western world. On War is widely regarded as Clausewitz's premier work on the philosophy of war and the first modern book of military strategy. The work is controversial -- Clausewitz's argument that war cannot be waged in a limited way has been blamed for the massive casualties in World Wars I and II -- yet it remains required reading at many military academies. Its enduring relevance can be explained by Clausewitz's recognition that while political leaders are not military experts, "a certain grasp of military affairs is vital for those in charge of general policy." He also emphasized social and economic issues as some of the most important factors in deciding the outcomes of wars. Clausewitz described a "remarkable trinity," consisting of "the people, the commanders and their army, and the government." The interplay among these three parts determines the nature, conduct, and purpose of war."--Page 4 of cover

A Prussian soldier and writer, Clausewitz is said to have distilled Napoleon into theory. Perhaps best known among his numerous pronouncements is that war is a continuation of politics by other means. His theories and observations in this work have been heeded by military strategists for nearly two hundred years. Many have considered this to be the bible of military strategy and tactics

The works of German military historian and theorist Carl von Clausewitz continue to be ranked among the finest examples of the genre. His surprisingly complex conceptions of war are still studied by military strategists. In On War, Clausewitz draws on his experiences in and observations of the French Revolution and the Napoleonic wars to develop a number of key ideas that still play a role in the planning and execution of military operations today
