Journal of a graduate student in military history and the American Civil War

the military philosophers / strategists

leave a comment »

This page serves as a location for me to identify key philosophers and strategists within the sphere of military history and to profile them. I also hope to identify their “body of work.” The intent is not to limit those I choose to profile to any specific war or period of time. Detail will be added as time permits.

Napoleon Bonaparte

Carl (Karl) von Clausewitz

Frederick the Great

Antoine-Henri Jomini


Niccolo Machiavelli – profiled in the Standford Encyclopedia of Philosophy

Helmuth von Moltke the Elder

Sun Tzu
