The Union had triumphed in victory over the Confederate as the war gradually came to an end on the third day. Over 7, men were dead and another 30, were wounded. This was besides the amount of physical destruction that had occurred during the three-day battle that was pivotal to the Civil War.
This article is also available in French: This is perhaps the most important article published on Clausewitz in the past thirty years. That's because nonlinear mathematics and science of which "Chaos Theory" and "Complexity" are trendy reflections underlie virtually all modern science.
They are what happened when it became routinely possible to apply computer analysis to real-world data in virtually every field.
Beyerchen's piece is a splendid introduction to the whole field and also to Clausewitz.
But the reader should go on to read more on the actual science. We recommend reading James Gleick, Chaos: Penguin, and M. Simon and Schuster, before reading efforts to apply nonlinearity to politics, social science, and history. We make this recommendation because a great many social science, security studies, and historical interpretation of nonlinearity are shallow, obtuse, and in many cases useless.
Some, however, are very good indeed: Oxford University Press, Understanding these scientific concepts will change your internal model of "how the world works. See our " Clausewitz and Complexity " section. Understanding the power of implicit comparison and its uses within the Marine Corps.

The discussants don't claim any particular expertise, and this is not the place to start learning about Clausewitz. However, if you are familiar with Clausewitz, and particularly if you are interested in teaching other people about Clausewitz, this discussion can tell you a lot about the ways in which Clausewitz comes across to intelligent, energetic seekers-after-truth who have not seriously encountered him before.
Here's a useful backgrounder by ChicagoBoyz discussant Joseph M. Guerra, " The Clausewitz Roundtable at Chicagoboyz. This is an insightful review essay covering: The Political Theory of War. That being said, the 'connection' has often been exaggerated. Azar Gat made this case effectively by digging up the original exchanges between Marx and Engels and showing they were by no means devout Clausewitzians, even though they read and commented on at least sections of his book, Vom Kriege.
The error among scholars has been to expect a connection based on methodological affinities alone. A closer scrutiny reveals that while their methodology had similarities, it was not the methodology that mattered. In fact, the way the revolutionaries cited Clausewitz was strategic, but shallow and far removed from method.
Instead, what becomes clear is that the ethical dimension of Clausewitz best explains where and how the revolutionaries linked up with his system, and more importantly where they broke away.
To arrive at this conclusion, one must consider the surprising fact that while the Communists were indeed citing Clausewitz, albeit not as much as has been claimed, their Anarchists co-revolutionaries in the anti-bourgeois movement were not citing him at all.
Their fighting doctrines were instead tied up closely with Hegel. This exclusive relationship tells us something about how the two groups understood the ethics of political violence—as 'instrumental' in the Clausewitzian tradition, or as a 'right' in the Hegelian tradition—and how this complicated the integration of Clausewitz into communist doctrine and made him altogether irrelevant to anarchist doctrine.
Convergence on Method, Divergence on Ethics. Using both a historical and a linguistic argument, this essay delineates early writings that are devoid of any Hegelian similarities from those later in Clausewitz's life where a convergence of ideas becomes manifest.
A counterpoise to Raymond Aron's overall dismissal of the link between the two authors, this article nonetheless reaches a limit as well: The author traces this divergence to a missing link: The essay provides grey tones to arguments on either side of the debate about influences, or lack thereof, which have strayed too far into shades of black and white.The Business of War.
