    I am excited to announce the impending publication of the first ever English edition of Carl von Clausewitz’s “Feldzug von 1796 in Italien” – Napoleon’s 1796 campaign in Italy.

    The 1796 campaign is the one in which Napoleon first established his glorious reputation, including famous battles such as Lodi, Castiglione, Arcole and Rivoli. Clausewitz is one of the most eminent of military theorists. In his history of the 1796 campaign he does not simply describe its events but analyses them and the generals’ decisions according to his strategic principles. The work provides great insight not only into the historical events but also into the evolution of Clausewitz’s strategic thinking.

    I and Professor Nicholas Murray of the US Naval War College have translated the work into English for the first time and added commentary and maps to create an annotated edition. We are honoured that Professor Dennis Showalter has agreed to write the Foreword. The book will be published in fall 2018 by the University Press of Kansas.

    As soon as a catalog entry is available I will post it here. Meanwhile, anyone wishing to be alerted by University Press of Kansas when they are ready to take orders for the book should go to their website and sign up for their e-newsletter:

    I have also been creating operational-level, stripped-down BBB scenarios to accompany the book. These offer another level of insight again. They can be found in the files of the BBB Yahoo group.

    Too early to know what the price will be. But the Press published a comparable book last year $34.95 hb and $17.95 pb, so maybe ours will be priced similarly: https://kansaspress.ku.edu/978-0-7006-2392-1.html
