*Author: Von Clausewitz, Carl/ Heuser, Beatrice/ Howard, Michael (TRN)/ Paret, Peter (TRN) *Series Title: Oxford Worlds Classics *Publication Date: 2008/06/15 *Number of Pages: 284 *Binding Type: Paperback *Language: English *Depth: 1.00 *Width: 5.00 *Height: 7.75
Clausewitz, an eminent Prussian military figure, never finished this work on the fundamentals of war and its political aspects. His wife Marie had the manuscript published in 1832 a year after his death. Although many of the examples are dated, few books on the topic have approached its depth and originality, and the book is considered a classic.


New Republic
"'On War' is undoubtedly one of the most useful books ever written....Now that we have the new publication from Princeton, translated with elegant clarity by Michael Howard and Peter Paret, all excuses for not reading Clausewitz are removed."
