This is the first COMPLETE on-line text of Carl von Clausewitz's magnum opus, ON WAR [based on COL F.N. Maude's 1908 revision (London: K. Paul, Trench, Trubner, and Company, 1908) of COL J.J. Graham's 1873 translation (London: N. Trubner, 1873) of the original Vom Kriege (Berlin: Dümmlers Verlag, 1832)]. It was provided to The Clausewitz Homepage in January 2003 by David Reed. He has been scanning and OCRing books for almost 10 years. He is a contributor to Project Gutenberg and etext librarian on the PDA etext libraries at AOL, where they release between 80 and 100 etexts per month. He also sells the Bootstrap CD library of etexts, which he has put together. He likes to work on books that he considers to be important. For example, he put Gibbon's Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire on the web. He is 49 and has been married for 26 years and has 6 children. He has a B.A. in Economics and has spent the last 30 years working as an Abstractor/Landman in the Title business.
