On War By Carl von Clausewitz
eBook (ePub): $1.99

Clausewitz was a professional soldier who was involved in numerous military campaigns, but he is famous primarily as a military theorist interested in the examination of war. He wrote a careful,... More > systematic, philosophical examination of war in all its aspects. The result was his principal work, On War, the West's premier work on the philosophy of war. It was only partially completed by the time of his death, but just how close to completion it was is a matter of considerable scholarly dispute. It clearly contains material written at different stages in Clausewitz's intellectual evolution, producing some significant contradictions between different sections, and the sequence and precise character of that evolution is a source of much debate.< Less

More > his wife in 1832. It has been translated into English several times as On War.

Clausewitz’s Center Of Gravity: Changing Our Warfighting Doctrine - Again! By Antulio J. Echevarria II, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.97

Over the last 25 years, the center of gravity concept has grown increasingly central to the U.S. military’s warfighting doctrine. It has been hailed by each of the Services and the Joint... More > community as the cornerstone of the operational art; and it has come to occupy a common place in the vocabulary of professional soldiers. It is somewhat surprising, therefore, that, over the last quarter-century especially, the term has come to have so many different meanings. In this monograph, the author, Lieutenant Colonel Antulio Echevarria II, cuts through the myriad interpretations surrounding the concept and gets back to the original idea as conceived by its author, the Prussian military theorist, Carl von Clausewitz. In going back to the original concept, Lieutenant Colonel Echevarria reveals that Clausewitz intended the center of gravity to function much as its counterpart in the mechanical sciences does, that is, as a focal point.< Less

Strategic Theory for the 21st Century: The Little Book on Big Strategy By Dr. Harry R. Yarger

The word "strategy" pervades American conversation and is most often used as a general term for a plan, a concept, a course of action, or a "vision" of the direction in which to... More > proceed. Such casual use of the term to describe nothing more than "what we would like to do next" is inappropriate and belies the complexity of true strategy and strategic thinking. This "little book" talks about big strategy, strategy at the highest levels of the nation-state. It is applicable to grand strategy, national security strategy, national military strategy, and regional or theater strategy. The monograph does not propose a strategy for the United States; rather, it provides a framework for considering strategy at any of the levels mentioned above. It is an examination of theory, exploring those aspects of strategy that appear to have universal application. The theory also may have application to the strategy of nonstate actors, institutions, and businesses, but the perspective offered here focuses on the nation-state.< Less

Political Control Over The Use Of Force: A Clausewitzian Perspective By Suzanne C. Nielsen, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $15.50
Ships in 3-5 business days
What is the ideal relationship between the commander and the statesman in time of war? Is there a balance to be struck between political control and military operational expertise? Given the... More > importance of these questions, the range of answers that has been given to them by both theorists and practitioners is striking. Major Suzanne Nielsen addresses these issues by examining what Carl von Clausewitz has to say about civil-military relations and the use of force. Though Clausewitz’s insight that “War is a continuation of policy” is well-known, his arguments about the appropriateness of extensive political control during time of war are not as often discussed. Clausewitz provides an argument for extensive political influence over military operations—influence that lacks a clear limit. Major Nielsen looks in depth at Clausewitz’s arguments on this point.< Less
