Carl Clausewitz

Carl Clausewitz

German military theorist
If we do not learn to regard a war, and the separate campaigns of which it is composed, as a chain of linked engagements each leading to the next, but instead succumb to the idea that the capture of certain geographical points or the seizure of undefended provinces are of value in themselves, we are liable to regard them as windfall profits.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
We shall not enter into any of the abstruse definitions of war used by publicists. We shall keep to the element of the thing itself, to a duel. War is nothing but a duel on an extensive scale.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
War is nothing but a continuation of politics with the admixture of other means.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything in war is very simple. But the simplest thing is difficult.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [09/30/2011 11:09:10]
