Description

A Prussian soldier and writer, Clausewitz is said to have distilled Napoleon into theory. Perhaps best known among his numerous pronouncements is that war is a continuation of politics by other means. His theories and observations in this work have been heeded by military strategists for nearly two hundred years. Many have considered this to be the Bible of military strategy and tactics.

This abridged version of Clausewitz's magnum opus follows the text of the New and Revised Edition (edited by F.N. Maude in 1908) of Col. J.J. Graham's translation. Of the original three volumes, this version includes all of Volume I (except for the last chapter on night fighting) and six of the nine chapters of Book Eight of Volume III (The Plan of War). The editor's objective in this abridgement was to select those portions of the work which most closely relate to our own time.

      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: The expert (and seemingly indefatigable) David Timson's rolling turns of phrase, his almost ornate expressiveness, sometimes further obscure the elevated style and complex 1830s verbosity of von Clausewitz's long-winded study of the art of war. But close attention--which this book, with its technical detail, constant references to military history, and rhetorical flourishes demands--reveals that his match of tone and emphasis to sense and his shaping of sentences are unfailingly accurate and help clarify, rather than obscure, the text's meaning, while he captures its tone and enlivens it as much as possible. Those willing to give this formidable audiobook the necessary attention will find his rendering true, helpful, and eloquent. Timson has done his work well; the rest is up to the listener.
