“WAR,” says von Clausewitz, “is a strange trinity, composed of the original violence of its essence, the hate and enmity which are to be regarded as a blind, natural impulse of the play of probabilities and chance, which make it a free activity of the emotions, and of the subordinate character of a political tool, through which it belongs to the province of pure intelligence. The first of these three sides is more particularly the concern of the people, the second that of the commander and his army and the third that of the government.”
