Default The Genesis of Clausewitz's On War Reconsidered

An article just spotted in the free, online British Journal of Military History (BJMH), on a subject I have not read about.

Abstract:
Quote:
This article will introduce and discuss the early versions and manuscripts of Clausewitz’s On War. Two manuscripts were recently discovered in the papers of Werner Hahlweg. On top of that, Clausewitz’s almost unknown publication Aphorisms on War and Warfare could be of great importance to the collective understanding of the genesis of On War and the development of Clausewitz’s key ideas such as the instrumental character of war, the paradoxical trinity and the dual nature of war. This is not only very interesting from a historical point of view, but also has conceptual consequences.

Default Rebooting Clausewitz: On War in the 21st Century

A new book by Professor Christopher Coker; using a different approach, citing the publisher's notice:
Quote:
Rebooting Clausewitz offers an entirely new take on the work of history’s greatest theorist of war. Written for an undergraduate readership that often struggles with Clausewitz’s master work On War — a book that is often considered too philosophical and impenetrably dense — it seeks to unpack some of Clausewitz’s key insights on theory and strategy. In three fictional interludes Clausewitz attends a seminar at West Point; debates the War on Terror at a Washington thinktank; and takes part in a heated discussion on the value of reading history at a meeting of the Military History Circle in London. Three separate essays situate Clausewitz in the context of his times, discuss his understanding of the culture of war, and the extent to which two other giants — Thucydides and Sun Tzu — complement his work.
