The place of Clausewitz's war studies, which have been studied extensively to date but are still trying to be understood in the real sense, is undeniable. So much so that Clausewitz's work titled On War, which he penned in the 19th century, has been at the center of the debates conducted in war studies from that day to this day and has made a significant contribution to efforts to understand the phenomenon of war. Despite the importance that Clausewitz carries in terms of his war studies, it is observed that efforts to understand him in Turkish literature are insufficient.
