Michael Howard shows an amazing analytical ability to convert the complex and often misunderstood writings of Clausewitz, into a consise, relevent and easily understood idiots guide.

Sir Michael Howard is perhaps Britain's greatest living military historian. He combines an ability to get to the very core of the subject he is writing about with clear, lucid language. Karl Von Clausewitz is THE military thinker. He got the very core of his subject, war. Howard outlines clearly the central pillars of Clausewitz' ideas about war so I won't repeat them here, but suffice to say his observations apply as equally to the limited, dynastic wars of Eighteenth century Europe as they would do to a future nuclear war.
This book is superb. Anyone wanting to understand the nature and purposes of that most complex and terrible of human interactions, war, can do no better than start here.

What can i say It's Clausewitz The man who coined the fraise 'War is the continuation of policy (politics) by other means' I bet he wished he'd got royalties on that now!
