Great. A skilful study of the interplay of military history and thought provides Don Stoker with an instructive way to approach Clausewitz's career and writings. * Jeremy Black, author of War and Technology * Stoker's biography stands as an authoritative analysis of Clausewitz's career as a soldier and theoretician, offering new insights into his subject's personality and legacy * Military History Monthly, Jules Stewart * Donald Stoker's book will please scholars and a wider public alike... Stoker's is a very human portrait of a man who was a once a genius, a brilliant analyst and a whinger, a thin-skinned melancholic, yet a merciless critic of others with bizarre mannerisms. We come away feeling we have met a fascinating man face to face, but not necessarily one that we would have liked. That said, this helps us better to understand Clausewitz's great contribution to our understanding of war. This is no mean achievement. * History Today, Beatrice Heuser *
