On War Carl von Clausewitz's 'On War', has become one of the most influential texts on military strategy ever written, sitting comfortably among the pantheon of similar greats such as Sun Tzu and Machiavelli. Clausewitz was born in Prussia in 1780, and witnessed first-hand the upheavals of the Napoleonic Era across Europe.
'On War' was shaped by Clausewitz's experiences as a soldier in the Prussian military, and many phrases that we take for granted, such as "the Fog of War", were first coined by Clausewitz in this work. Clausewitz chose to focus on the moral and political implication of actions in war as well as on the pure strategy, with one of his most famous aphorisms being; "War is the continuation of politics by other means".
