THE DEAD PRUSSIAN PODCAST: A Podcast about War and Warfare.

 "Carl von Clausewitz and his work On War has had a great influence on the way modern, particularly Western, militaries practice war. It is for this reason that this podcast, an exploration of war and warfare, is named The Dead Prussian. This podcast will endeavour to study war and warfare as thoroughly as Clausewitz did."

Kings of War logo Various blogs have been maintained by the energetic faculty and research students of the Department of War Studies, King's College London. (Oddly, there is no mention of that Department on KCL's main page....) While the somewhat renegade "Kings of War" blog mysteriously disapparated c.2014, its fellow blog, Defence-In-Depth: Research from the Defence Studies Department, King's College London," which appears to have a more official flavor, lives on. Since c.2015, the Department also publishes both the "Strife academic blog" and the peer-reviewed academic journal, Strife Journal, which is published biannually. See, for instance, the blog article by Andreas Haggman, "Clausewitz and cyber security: towards a new Trinity?" (13 February 2014).They seem to face some technical challenges, however.

"In this blog, our correspondents provide reporting and analysis on the subjects of defence, security and diplomacy, covering weapons and warfare, spooks and cyber-attacks, diplomats and dead-drops. The blog is named after Carl von Clausewitz, the Prussian soldier and military theorist whose classic work, On War, is still widely studied today."
