A Game of War

Published by Atlas Press
By Alice Becker-Ho & Guy Debord. Translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith.

Featured diagram, "Beginning and Main Movements" of the game, is reproduced from <I>A Game of War</I>.Founder and theorist of the Situationist International, and author of the massively influential book The Society of the Spectacle, Guy Debord (1931–1994) was also a connoisseur of military strategy. In his first volume of autobiography, Panegyric, Debord recounted his interest in classical war theory as espoused by the Prussian military theorist, Carl von Clausewitz. Debord devised and wrote the board game and book A Game of War in collaboration with his wife, Alice Becker-Ho, who has assisted with the production of this publication. As he writes in Panegyric: “I have studied the logic of war. Moreover I succeeded, a long time ago, in presenting the basics of its movements on a rather simple board game. I have played this game and, in the often difficult conduct of my life I have utilized lessons from it.” The game became Debord’s obsession in the years before his suicide in 1994. This first translation of the book (by Donald Nicholson-Smith, himself a past member of the Situationist group) comes slipcased with the board and counters.

Featured diagram, "Beginning and Main Movements" of the game, is reproduced from A Game of War.
