"This new translation of Clausewitz's famous unfinished work is all that an English-language reader could ask. This surely is the edition in English of ON WAR for our time & some long time to come." ---International Journal. "The text is preceded by three superlative essays which deal with the nature of the work, Clausewitz's influence on history, & the continuing relevance of ON WAR....The translation's strong point is its exceptional clarity...it is a brilliant achievement." "ON WAR is undoubtedly one of the most useful books ever written.... Now that we have the new publication from Princeton, translated with elegant clarity by Michael Howard & Peter Paret, all excuses for not reading Clausewitz are removed." ---The New Republic.
