On War by Carl Von Clausewitz

Required reading at West Point and Sandhurst, a major influence on Lenin and Mao Zedong and read cover to cover no fewer than three times by Eisenhower, Clausewitz’s magnum opus is one of the most important studies of warfare, military strategy and philosophy ever written. In 1943, Allied bombers dropped leaflets over Germany asserting that Hitler had not read and understood On War properly. Such was Clausewitz’s stature in Germany that Hitler felt forced to reply. As happened with the 4th-century treatise The Art of War, dicta from On War have been extracted and applied to activities outside professional soldiering, from game theory to business. In her foreword, historian Joanna Bourke, author of several books on war and violence, reveals that the issues Clausewitz explores remain of immense concern today: militarism, the ethics of slaughter, the distinction between abstract war and war in its bloody reality, the role of leaders, and political control over the military. Translated by Michael Howard and Peter Paret.
