'This prose anthology of war is a delight for specialists and general readers alike. It works particularly well for dippers like myself. I found I was opening it at random, reading a couple of essays, becoming absorbed, reading more, opening at another point, repeating the process and so on. I shall return to it many times in the future.'Sir Anthony Parsons International Relations Vol XII No 2 Aug '94
'Collections of extracts about war in general or particular wars are nothing new, but this one seems original in its attempted comprehensiveness. It is called an "Oxford Reader", and it will no doubt make a very serviceable one for students the whole world over.'Times Literary Supplement

I invested in On War by Clausevitz as a matter of course, as well as the title above.
I started reading On War but found it a grammatically torturous and not very revealing read, and so put it down and started reading War (Oxford Readers).
It's a great place to start for a beginner, approaching the subject from many angles, a few of which I hadn't even considered. It's a collection of essays and snippets, many of which are quite old but it's amazing how relevant they are despite the immense changes that have occurred since 1991 (when the edition was released).
Certainly worth a read, and hopefully it will make On War a tad more digestible when I get round to trying to read it again.
