On war by Carl von Clausewitz ( Book )
151 editions published between 1832 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 4,255 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." --P. [4] of cover

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 ... Principles of war examines moral and psychological aspects of warfare, stressing the necessity of such qualities as courage, audacity, and self-sacrifice, and the importance of morale and public opinion. Clausewitz emphasizes the notion of strategy as an evolving plan, rather than a formula, a concept adaptable to modern strategists in fields beyond military science

On Wellington : a critique of Waterloo by Carl von Clausewitz ( Book )
6 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 273 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

Carl von Clausewitz two letters on strategy by Carl von Clausewitz ( )
4 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 186 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This edition of Carl von Clausewitz's Two Letters on Strategy was made possible by the Army War College Foundation and by the Art of War Colloquium of the Army War College, which sponsors the volume as part of its program of republishing military classics for the professional development of the officer corps. The Army War College wishes to express its gratitude to the co-editors and translators, Professor Peter Paret, Spruance Professor of International History at Stanford University, and Dr. Daniel Moran. In recent years, Carl von Clausewitz's On War has attracted many new readers in this country, stimulated in large part by the publication in 1976 of a new translation and edition of the work by Professors Michael Howard and Peter Paret. Generally readers have concentrated on Clausewitz's philosophy, theory, and strategic concepts, as developed in Books One, Two, Three, and Eight of On War. His views on operations, on the other hand, have been largely neglected. The present work provides us with an opportunity to study Clausewitz's thinking on operational issues in a specific strategic context. Two Letters on Strategy deals with the planning and conduct of a campaign, based on problems set by the Chief of Prussian General Staff in 1827
