    “War Against War is a magnificent book that gives opponents of American involvement in World War I, one of the most profoundly destructive conflicts in human history, their due. In elegant and engaging prose, Michael Kazin tells a story about politics, morality, social forces and a fascinating cast of personalities with power and ed on: Janu The Grammarians' War (–) was a conflict between rival systems of teaching two main antagonists were English grammarians and schoolmasters William Horman and Robert War involved Latin primers called Vulgaria, which were thus named because they contained "vulgar" (in the 16th century sense, i.e. everyday and common) sayings or phrases that schoolchildren were.

    In terms of tactical warfare, this book would probably be better titled On War Against Napoleon, because that’s really what Clausewitz was writing about. It is in his understanding of politics — or rather, what happens when politics break down — that Clausewitz really made his contributions. So read On War for that, not for specific. If a work of Edmond Potonié-Pierre from already discusses the idea of reifying conflicts under the title "la guerre à la guerre" (the war against war) in its modern acceptation the concept is formally coined in by William James in his essay The moral equivalent of also used as a political slogan, it was a cornerstone of the ideology of both the European pre World War I.

      The book is a generally easy-to-read modern consideration of war, which ponders the different aspects of war, illustrating them with examples from the past and present. Creveld’s so-called dispute with Clausewitz and Sunzi can be viewed as the narrativisation, dramatisation and framing of his general approach to military theory. If you check on Google Books Ngram Viewer, you will see that the expressions war on and war against are just about equally popular.. In my experience, war on is used typically for popular campaigns such as war on waste, war on plastic and war on each of these war is being used as a metaphor for a campaign linked to ecology, pollution or health concerns.
