Principles of War, by Carl von Clausewitz by Carl von Clausewitz Translated and edited by Hans W. Introduction I. II. 1. 2. 3. 4. III. 1. 2. 3. IV. Notes by Christopher Bassford Before Clausewitz left Prussia in 1812 to join the Russian army and resist Napoleon, he prepared an essay on war to leave with the sixteen year-old Prussian Crown Prince Friedrich Wilhelm (later King Friedrich Wilhelm IV, r.1840-1858), whose military tutor he had become in 1810. The translation reproduced here was done by Hans Gatzke in 1942. Gatzke's brief introduction to Principles (which is omitted here) raises some doubt that Gatzke was really familiar with Clausewitz's more mature conceptions as expressed in On War. This particular work has rarely aroused any enthusiasm among Clausewitz's more theoretically-oriented students, since it fails to reflect many of the most important of its author's later and deeper insights. Clausewitz c.1813 (still in Russian uniform) 1. 2. 3. War is a combination of many distinct engagements. I. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.

Visual essay-writing: cartoons, sticky-notes and plenty of collaboration! To develop analytical and essay-writing skills in a collaborative and engaging manner, start by gathering a series of photographs relating to the topic in question: A pile of cartoons and photographs (maybe about 20 of these)PodcastsVideo clipsTextbooksArticles Next, divide the class into groups. Within each group, three students should be responsible for organising the cartoons into meaningful categories to answer the key question for the lesson (in the photograph shown here, cartoons are being organised into meaningful categories to help understand “Why was the Marshall Plan so controversial?”). Whilst the ‘cartoonists’ are busy discussing how to arrange the images meaningfully, another student should be listening to the podcasts, another watching the video, another reading the article, and another reading a textbook (it is a good idea to let students choose the task they are most comfortable with, as far as possible).

In 2003 the University of Chicago in the 15th edition of The Chicago Manual of Style finally gave quite full treatment of citations of electronic information (§§ 16.18, 16.40, 17.4-15, 17.142-147, 17.180-181, 17.187, 17.198, 17.208, 17.211, 17.234-237, 17.239, 17.270-271, 17.273, 17.356, and 17.357-359).
