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.

On war by Carl von Clausewitz( )

15 editions published between 1985 and 2013 in English and held by 160 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 200 years. Many have considered this to be the "Bible" of military strategy and tactics

Carl von Clausewitz: two letters on strategy by Carl von Clausewitz( Book )

3 editions published between 1984 and 1994 in English and held by 5 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
Clausewitz : a very short introduction by Michael Howard( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Karl von Clausewitz is acknowledged to be one of the few truly great writers on war. Even though he wrote his only major work, On War, at a time when the range of firearms was fifty yards, much of what he had to say remains relevant today. Michael Howard explains Clausewitz's ideas in terms both of his experiences as a professional soldier in the Napoleonic Wars, and of the intellectual background of his time
