Clausewitz’s library

Being book obsessed I do like a good article on other people’s books, not what they wrote themselves necessarily but what they own(ed).

 

Therefore when I found this article I was all over it…:

Interesting stuff… plenty of leads to follopw up to get into the thinking of one of the more influential thinkers in military history.

 

Cheers,

 

Pete.

      Thank you. The key line in the article for me is the fact he had access to the large institutional libray. A catalogue of theirs would make for fascinating browsing.

      Cheers,

      Pete.
