On War is one of the most influential books ever written on the subject of conflict.

Its author, Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz (1780-1831), is often credited with masterminding what is now known as “complete war” - conflict with the all-out backing of the state, and his teachings have been embraced by figures as diverse as US President Dwight Eisenhower and Lenin.

Focusing on the philosophy of war, Von Clausewitz’s book says conflict cannot be waged on a map and devises a series of timeless strategies to defeat the enemy in the most efficient manner possible.

“To introduce into the philosophy of war a principle of moderation would be an absurdity,” he wrote.

The masterpiece is presented in this beautifully-produced Apostrophe Books edition with an introduction by Gulf War legend and bestselling author Andy McNab – the British Army’s most highly decorated serving soldier when he left the SAS.
