Abstract:

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.
