The first comprehensive comparative analysis of Sun Tzu's The Art of War, Clausewitz's On War and Jomini's The Art of War, this book is much more than an introduction to the classical theory of war - it is a source of provocative insight on strategic issues and an argument for the increasing relevance and importance of these enduring works. Among the issues examined are the primacy of politics in war; the rational conduct of war; leadership; the place of intuition in command; the attitudes of commanders towards risk-taking; the part played by intelligence, surprise and deception; and the mobilization and participation of the people. Professor Handel's intention in this pioneering study is to stimulate discussion on the value of classical theory for the modern student of military affairs. His detailed analysis of three great strategists will prove a useful guide for novices as well as a challenging basis for further research by those already acquainted with their work.
