The book "ON WAR" by Clausewitz has now arrived; it was printed by you ( order No. 205-348 3078-5086 712).
It is unreadable because of the very small font ( font 7 or less; 25 words per line and over 4 lines per inch).
Why do you not use a normal size of font ?
I look forward to hearing from you
T. B. Wilson
The main contribution of Clausewitz is represented by his maxim that "war is merely the continuation of policy by other means." In other words, war is basically an extension of politics. The initial motive for warfare is encapsulated by a political objective; war is a means to a political end. Clausewitz argues that policy permeates and essentially determines the character and extent of all military operations; the authority of the military commander is circumscribed by the political aims of the state. Thus, Clausewitz essentially maintains that the public sector (the state) must exercise authority over military operations.Read more ›
