Clausewitz is often quoted but more often misunderstood. On Clausewitz presents his central ideas about war and politics - such as war as an instrument of policy, the concept of Absolute War, friction and the fog of war - in a clear and systematic fashion. It also presents the man, his life and the military and intellectual environment in which he produced his great work On War . A final section considers Clausewitz's relevance to the rapidly changing nature of war today.

Militærhistorie, krigshistorie - om den tyske militærhistoriske klassiker: Vom Kriege og forfatteren, general Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831), skrevet af den anerkendte engelske historiker, militærhistoriker og sikkerhedspolitiske ekspert, professor Michael Howard. "Clausewitz is generally acknowledged to be the greatest of writters on war. The question he raised are hotly debated even today: is it possible to have a theory of war at all? how does theory relate to practice? what did Clausewitz really mean in his much quoted and misquoted aphorism "War is the continuation of policy by other means? Its remarkable how much of what he has to say - at a time when the range of firearms was fifty yards - has remained relevant, not only under military conditions transformed out of all recognition, but for a readership far broader that the officers of the Prussian Army whose education he primarily had in mind. Michael Howard guides the reader througt Clausewitz's major work: On War, and explains the ideas in terms both of Clausewitz' own experiences as a professional soldier in the Napoleonic Wars and of the intellectual background of his time." Contents: Note on quotations; Introduction; Clausewitw in his time; Theory and practice in war; Ends and means in war; Limited and absolute war; The legacy of Clausewitz.

Failure and folly are inevitable in war and in security policy related to war. Technology cannot rescue flawed policy or strategy. In his review of U.S. military strategy, Cimbala points to the possibility that excessive faith in technology may lead American strategy into a cul-de-sac.
