Item description for On War by Carl Von Clausewitz & J. J. Graham...
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. The author fought against the armies of the French Revolution and Napoleon, served as a staff officer, and became a prominent military educator. In this work, he examines moral and psychological aspects of warfare, stressing the necessity of courage, audacity, and self-sacrifice, as well as the importance of morale and public opinion. He emphasizes the notion of strategy as an evolving plan, rather than a formula, a concept adaptable to modern strategists in fields beyond military science.

The "Other" Clausewitz Book Nov 13, 2009
"Principles of War" is a great little read if you've already read "On War" by Clausewitz. It would also make a great introduction to that larger work if you've never read it. "Principles of War" is not as dense as "On War" and reads like a completed treatise than it's larger relative. The "Principles of War" is clear, concise and to the point. A great pocket read.
