On War, Carl von Clausewitz

“War is a continuation of politics by other, violent means,” – asserts the Prussian officer Carl von Clausewitz (1780 – 1831). He worked on the famous treatise On War half of his life – from 1816 till his death in 1831. The work was not completed, and was published by the widow Clausewitz. The book had an enormous influence on military leaders of the 19-20th centuries and had made a revolution in the theory of war. Criticizing many military events, the author pays much attention to politics and its influence on the course of the war, as well as the dependence of the outcome on the personal qualities of politicians and military leaders. A collector’s edition, it will be a perfect gift to a person who has to make crucial decisions.
