The conflicts after 1945 were nothing more than a demonstration that Carl von Clausewitz’s ideas and principles of war are still relevant today.
The influence of the trinity of violence over the battles’ outcome, the effectiveness of limited wars, and the persistence of friction are Clausewitz’ principles that were identified in post-World War II conflicts.
a. Clausewitz trinity still represents a remarkable tool to measure the role and correlations between the leaders, the military and the society during war times, described as the connection between the enmity, the violence, and the hatred. Describe using examples like the Vietnam war and others.
b. The theory of limited wars assumes that an enemy will offer less opposition to smaller demands. Describe using examples like the Korean War and others.
c. There will be always fog and friction associated with the war. Describe using examples like Russian actions in Eastern Europe (Crimea) and others.
Can use other ideas from Clausewitz, but demonstrate with examples of wars after 1945 where US was involved: Korea, Vietnam, Irak.
Carl von Clausewitz remains one of the most accurate analysts of its time. His ideas about warfare constitute the starting point in understanding the US experience in post-World War II conflicts.
The essay should answer the questions: How are the Clausewitz’s ideas helping us to understand the US experience since 1945? Which are these ideas?
