The Comedy of War is an overview of military politics, strategy, and the causes of war utilizing books and films as source texts: The Art of War by Sun Tzu, on War by Prussian General Carl von Clausewitz, and The Butter Battle by Dr. Seuss; (the films) Antz and A Bug's Life. This work offers systematic interpretations of what goes on before and after war, and the political and strategic implications of warfare. It provides interesting and plausible explanations for the contentious relationship of military officers and civilian leaders, ultimately questioning what happens when the definitions of military and civilian activities become blurred
