Carl von Clausewitz ( to ) was a Prussian soldier, professor, and intellectual, whose combat experience and deep reflection on strategy and military theory led to the writing and posthumous publication of Vom Kriege (On War) in To this day, it is heralded as the most influential work of Western military philosophy and strategy.

Clausewitz, a Prussian general who fought against Napoleon, quite literally wrote the book on war. Published ina year after his death, On War is regarded by military experts even today as the definitive study of warfare.

His ideas remain widely taught in military schools, and are, more than ever, essential to the modern strategist. B. Liddell Hart, Strategy () the insights it provides are valuable grist for future debates on military strategy.

While he may vilify Clausewitz too much, Liddell Hart is correct to criticize the faulty application and misunderstanding of Clausewitzian thinking. While unfinished, it has become the starting point for most scholars. Using a range of contexts, the book sets out to look at whether the classical Clausewitzian theory of the nature of war will retain its validity in this new age.

The analysis covers the character of the future battlespace, the function of command, and the much-hyped concept of Strategic Information Warfare.

This starts with an illuminating definition that immediately emphasises, "the distinction between military aim and political objective". War from the Ground Up is a book that should be read by all military officers and politicians who have any involvement with the conflict in Afghanistan, as it gives a first class insight into the complex dynamics that trouble this country and its future/5(24).

With tactics from Vom Kriege used widely as military doctrine and foreign policy around the world based on Clausewitzian theories such as the paradoxical trinity and the center of gravity, it is apparent that Clausewitz’s lessons live on.

He repeatedly stresses that our best view of future wars comes from the mirror of past wars, in that technology, causes, and techniques may change but the nature of conflict will remain the use of force to impose one's will /5.The most recent critic of the writings of Clausewitz is Martin van Creveld, who makes his case in his book, The Transformation of War and in a series of lectures at the U.S.
