About the Author

Carl von Clausewitz remains one of history’s most important military theorists, recognized primarily for his masterpiece On War. Less well-known, however, is his role as a historian, of which The Campaign of 1812 in Russia is an outstanding example. Clausewitz was appointed a lieutenant colonel by the czar, and played an important part in ensuring Napoleon’s ultimate downfall.

Format: Paperback
Although I found the book insightful and rather stimulating, there was a large lack of precise detail regarding the mindset of the Emperor himself and just why he would attempt such a foolhardy invasion. Along with the maps and depictions, it was totally enjoyable, one of the few books I have not been able to put down.

1 of 21 people found the following review helpful By D. A. Johnson on March 21, 2006
Format: Paperback
But to me, as a person seeking a first-hand account of 1812, there just really was not much to this book.

I am admittedly not a military history sort, but I just could not find the substance of the campaign that I was looking for. I kept moving forward, looking for a flicker of the larger picture. Von Clausewitz is so highly regarded, I do wonder if it is just me here.

I have another such histroy on my reading list. I just hope this military experience was an aberration.

But my disappointment and irritation led me to do the unthinkable - I threw this one onto the trash. No use having such an book taking precious shelf space.
