Many of the theories on war in the information age predict substantial changes to the character of war. Should these changes come to pass, the very nature of war could be transformed. This could have significant implications for Clausewitz's work, which is regarded as the literary manifestation of the nature of war. However, the nature of war is far more robust than many modern theorists suggest. This robustness emanates from the core elements of strategy, which ensure that war remains an uncertain, non-linear human activity as Clausewitz identified.
