As a German native, I would like to comment on Ed Stahl's comment. I don't know who made the mistake - The Reporter or Ed Stahl, but the book by von Clausewitz is called "Die Theorie des Krieges" and he died in November of 1831. Please get the facts right.

Sorry, but Stahl seems to have gotten the title right (except for misspelling "Kriege"). Here's an image of the original German book's title page from wikimedia: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons... Maybe von Clausewitz wrote more than one book.
