A Children’s Illustrated Clausewitz in the Works?

My friend Drew Lewis recently brought to my attention an amusing post elsewhere at WordPress.  It seems that someone who calls himself “Caidid” and who has degrees in History, Studio Art, and International Relations has vowed to produce a children’s illustrated edition of On War; apparently he [she –Sorry!] is using the somewhat controversial Graham translation.  Caidid assures us that this project will actually come to fruition because he she has a “lifelong commitment to being one of those people who actually does those silly things you talk about doing but never do.”

Caidid has asked for our help over the course of the project in the form of feedback on graphics, ideas for graphics, commentary, etc.  I intend to give him her my help.  I hope that despite my help he she succeeds.

  1. Thanks for the mention! All help is appreciated. While the Graham translation is what I have now, I am planning on picking up the Paret translation as I dive into this project. One other thing, though: I am actually a ‘she,’ not a ‘he.’ 🙂

    • Oops! I apologize for the assumption. I’ll amend. 🙂

  2. Hooray!

  3. This is the coolest idea ever. Every child should learn the difference between brawling and vigorous, strategic bargaining from a young age 🙂
