The technology of warfare has changed since Carl von Clausewitz’s Vom Kriege was first published, but the fundamental nature of modern warfare is still the same. Beyond Vom Kriege furthers Clausewitz’s theory of war by offering a first-hand account of global conflicts and strategies that influenced American national security strategy across six presidential administrations. Intelligence officers and policy makers will appreciate this honest and clear-cut essay collection, which includes reflections on Grenada, Somalia, Iraq, and Afghanistan. A foreword by LTG H. R. McMaster begins this valuable collection of military strategy.
