Notes: "On War (Vom Krieg) was originally pub. in 1832. This translation from the German by J.J. Graham was first pub. in 1908, and edited with notes and introduction by Anatol Rapoport in 1968"--Title page verso.
Reprint. Originally published: Baltimore : Penguin Books, [1968].
"The present abridged version of Clausewitz's magnum opus follows the text of the New and Revised Edition (edited by Col. F.N. Maude) of Col. J.J. Graham's translation. This edition first appeared in 1908 and has been reprinted several times, most recently in 1966 (New York: Barnes & Noble; London, Routledge & Kegan Paul.) Of the original three volumes, the present version includes all of Vol. I (except for the last short chapter on night fighting) and six of the nine chapters of Book Eight of Vol. III ('The Plan of War'). The selections were guided by an intention to offer to the contimporary general reader and to the student of international relations those portions of On War which relate most directly to our own time. Clausewitz was concerned both with the role of war in human affairs and with the conduct of military operations. His thoughts on the former subject are a lasting contribution to the treasury of ideas and a source of insight into the terrible problems now confronting humanity. His exposition of technical matters is of interest mostly to the military scholar. For this reason the sections dealing with the philosophical, social, psychological, and political aspects of war have been largely retained, and those dealing with strategic and tactical matters (to which Vol. II is almost totally devoted) have been largely omitted."--Preface, p. 9.
