Understanding War Essays on Clausewitz and the History of Military Power Press Reviews

Peter Paret is arguably the world's leading scholar on Clausewitz... Here he has collected essays published over a lifetime of scholarship on Clausewitz and the history and institutions of war. They display his characteristic attention to detail, awareness of the larger context, insightful comments, and readable style. --L. L. Farrar, Jr., History: Reviews of New Books Peter Paret is a prominent figure in the revival of [military history]; hence, the publication of his collected essays is a matter of import... There is much in this small book for the soldier as well as the historian... This is, indeed, a valuable book. --Edward M. Coffman, Parameters
