Series: Dover Military History, Weapons, Armor. This is a somewhat intriguing work, though not for anything revealed in terms of war. It is a reprint of the 1960 Stackpole Books military classics, itself a translation of the German reprint of 1936. The introduction gives probably the best short bio of Clausewitz I have read, Very shy and reserved, he never wrote anything published in his life; as he wanted to totally redo the Prussian army, he was never given the chance.

Amazon's linking system has some bugs and in this case on a much more recent edition of THE ART OF WAR you have this really old, public domain translation showing as a new edition. Under no condition get this edition, unless you are just really wanting the Henry Neville translation. I personally would recommend the University of Chicago translation, though to be honest we are really at a place where a new translation by Cambridge or Oxford or Penguin is called for. The old U of Chicago Press translations (where I once worked, so if anything I'm biased towards the press) of Machiavelli tend to slant towards Straussian versions of the man (though I will confess that I'm extremely biased against old Leo - though I should also add that while I dislike Strauss, I think Henry Mansfield's editions of Machiavelli are the least repulsive Straussian editions that I've ever seen, with the lone exception of Thomas Pangle's THE SPIRIT OF REPUBLICANISM). But the main point is that this Dover cheap edition is not a new, but very much an old, edition.
