Letter to Maria van Reigersbergen  by: Hugo de Groot A letter from Hugo de Groot to his wife Maria van Reigersbergen, or Reigersbergh picture on the left, cover illustration of a modern edition of Robert Fruin's biography of Maria van Reigersberg.
The letter was written from Loevestijn Castle, in which De Groot was incarcerated. Dearest of all, That I did not write you before, happened for good reasons. Besides God there is no greater solace for me than often to receive tidings from you. I am uneasy about the state of your health especially as to the complaint in your side. I long to know how the children are getting on, and my father and your and my mother and the other dear friends. My sleep is tolerable, thank God. The stomach is better than before. God Almighty, who so far has succoured us so graciously, will not forbear helping and consoling us.
Rely upon Him and pray to Him and give my regards and compliments to all the friends. Yours always devotedly, H. Having busied myself for over fourteen years with the study of war in all its phases and aspects, I am astonished to find that the remarkable evolution which is rapidly turning the sword into a ploughshare has passed almost unnoticed even by the professional watchmen who are paid to keep a sharp look-out.
In my work on the war of the future I endeavoured to draw a picture of this interesting process. But writing for specialists, I was compelled to enter largely into details, the analysis of which ran into 3, pages. The facts which are there garnered together, and the consequences which flow from them, run too strongly counter to the vested interests of the most powerful class of the community to admit of their being immediately embodied in measures of reform.
And this I foresaw from the first. What I could not foresee was the stubbornness which [it] not only recoiled from taking action but set itself to twist and distort the facts. Patriotism is highly respectable, but it is dangerous to identify it with the interests of a class.
The steadfastness with which the military caste clings to the memory of a state of things which has already died is pathetic and honourable. Unfortunately it is also costly and dangerous. Therefore I venture now to appeal to the British masses, whose vital interests are at stake and whose verdict must be final. Europe's patriots were unmoved. French cavalry and British infantry commanders only learned Bloch's lessons by a process of trial and error once Bloch's impossible war, World War I , had begun.
The Russian and German monarchies proved equally incapable of assimilating Bloch's cautionary words concerning revolution, paying the price with summary execution and exile , respectively.
Bloch's foresight is somewhat qualified by what proved an underestimation of the tactical and strategic significance of indirect e. Bloch also did not realise the potential of non-rail motor-transport. None of these oversights was significant enough to undermine his broadest observations, however, for the period before about Bloch survived long enough after publishing his theory to turn his analytical talents to investigating the institutional barriers which prevented the theory's adoption by the military establishment.
He appears [ original research? Contemporary theory treats Bloch as the Clausewitz of the early s. A review in in the journal War in History  concentrates on the interaction between Bloch's theory and the military professionals of the time. In short, it finds that they tended to dismiss Bloch, on the basis that, while his "mathematics" might be correct, his overall message ran the risk of being bad for morale.
Bloch converted to Calvinism , the religion of a small minority in the Russian Empire. In this way he was able to avoid the legal disabilities imposed on Jews under Tsarist rule, especially the geographical limitation to the Pale of Settlement , banning Jews from living in the Empire's main cites - without needing to regularly attend a church and be visibly practising Christianity. As became evident especially in the later part of his life, he retained a strong concern for the situation of the Jews, even if formally no longer one of them.

Following the wave of pogroms of the s and the early s, a commission headed by the vociferously antisemitic Interior Minister Vyacheslav von Plehve recommended a further worsening of the Jews' legal position. In response, Bloch sent to the government a series of well-reasoned memoranda calling for an end to the discrimination of the Jews. Bloch also embarked upon an extensive research on the social and economic conditions of the Russian Empire's Jewish subjects. For that purpose, he established a team of scientific researchers headed by the Russian economist A.
Subotin, on whose work he spent hundreds of thousands of rubles.
The result, completed only in - one year before Bloch's death - was a five-volume work entitled "Comparison of the material and moral levels in the Western Great-Russian and Polish Regions". On the basis of extensive statistical data, compiled mainly in the Pale of Settlement, he gave a comprehensive account of the Jewish role in the Empire's economic life, in crafts, trade and industry.
