Excerpt
Introduction: Modern military theory was born out of the French Revolution and the wars that followed. This revolution, against the Sun King, Louis XVI, started an upheaval in Europe which swept away all that had existed, established a new order in France, and created a new model for society in Europe. The military theory of the Enlightenment which postulated small, expert armies carrying out warfare in a scientific manner was also swept away by Napoleon with the same decisiveness with which he dispatched the Prussian army at Jena. Carl von Clausewitz, one of the participants in this war and the subject of a large part of this study, wrote ?Bonaparte?s audacity and luck have cast the old accepted practices to the winds. Major powers were shattered with virtually a single blow.? 1 In reaction to these wars, Clausewitz and Henri de Jomini each produced military theories in order to describe the new character of war.
