Abstract:

A useful theory that many authors contend explains the nature and conduct of warfare in the twenty-first century is Trinitarian warfare described by Carl von Clausewitz in his book, On War. While Clausewitz theories of Trinitarian warfare are quite relevant, the hypothesis offered in this paper is that due to the nature and conduct of warfare in the twenty-first century, his theories can be improved upon. This paper will focus on linking cultural understanding to Trinitarian warfare models presented by Clausewitz in On War. The intent is to refine Trinitarian warfare by comparing it to a more focused cultural analysis and possibly the development of a more predictive theory of warfare.
