Tactical Victory and Political Victory: Helmuth von Moltke's Art of War

Cui Bono Cast

Dr. Caleb Karges, military historian on the faculty of Concordia’s History and Political Thought department, discusses Helmuth von Moltke’s work The Art of War. This may sound like an obscure topic for non-specialists, but it helps make sense of the two world wars and more. Moltke was Chief of the Prusso-German Generals Staff during the Wars of German Unification. This conversation is based on the edition of Moltke’s classic by Daniel Hughes. Topics mentioned include railroads, telegraphs, Otto von Bismarck, Kaiser Wilhelm II, World War I, World War II, and the ideas of Philips Payson O'Brien.
