Clausewitz’s On War is one of our most recommended history books and clearly a vital book to read if you take history seriously. It’s quite hard to listen to as an audiobook, however. As a result, we recommend listening, instead, to the audiobook of Clausewitz’s on War: A Biography by military historian Sir Hew Strachan. It’s part of a series called ‘books that changed the world’ published by Grove Atlantic. It’s fascinating—not least to see how the reputation of an important book evolves over time.
