Carl Clausewitz

German military theorist
We must, therefore, be confident that the general measures we have adopted will produce the results we expect. most important in this connection is the trust which we must have in our lieutenants. consequently, it is important to choose men on whom we can rely and to put aside all other considerations. if we have made appropriate preparations, taking into account all possible misfortunes, so that we shall not be lost immediately if they occur, we must boldly advance into the shadows of uncertainty.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
War is not an independent phenomenon, but the continuation of politics by different means.More Carl Clausewitz quotes [09/30/2011 11:09:22]
