INTRODUCTION: The Prussian military thinker Carl von Clausewitz is widely acknowledged as the most important of the classical strategic thinkers. Even though he's been dead for nearly two centuries, he remains a powerful living influence: the most frequently cited, the most controversial, and in many respects the most modern of strategic theorists. is intended as a central source for information, related texts, articles, and arguments about the man and his ideas.

On our sister site, a great deal of ancillary information (e.g., on Clausewitz-related tourism, graphics, humor, books commercially available) that may also be of use to those researching, writing, or teaching about Clausewitz.

Together, the two sites are designed to accommodate anyone interested in understanding human strategies, including not only scholarly researchers on Clausewitz but also students and faculty in professional military education (PME) institutions, business schools, and other organizations concerned with human competition and conflict.
