This chapter discusses Clausewitz's principles of strategy. Among these are: defence as the stronger form of war, numerical superiority, surprise, concentration, and the culminating point of victory. Contrary to the conventional wisdom that Clausewitz eschewed principles, they were actually germane to his attempt to build a coherent theory of war.

Keywords:   defence, attack, culminating point of victory, principles of war, strategy, numerical superiority, victory
