Reading Clausewitz against the backdrop of the Prussian crisis of 1806-1815. The latest installment of the War in Germany series. How did a radical Prussian reformer become a global icon for military intellectuals? How did history enter the philosophy of war? All framed by the radicalization of war, the Prussian levée en masse and society politics in Berlin during the crisis. A new biography of Marie von Clausewitz (née von Brühl) highly recommended.
