    War, in the popular sense, a conflict between political groups involving hostilities of considerable duration and the usage of social science, certain qualifications are added. Sociologists usually apply the term to such conflicts only if they are initiated and conducted in accordance with socially recognized forms. They treat war as an institution recognized in custom or in law.   It shows that the war aims adopted during the First World War were not, for the most part, the cause of the conflict, but a reaction to it, an attempt to give the tragedy a purpose - even if the consequence was to oblige the belligerents to go on fighting until victory.

    Clausewitz's On War (–34; Eng. trans., ) emphasized the close relationship between war and national policy and the importance of the principles of mass, economy of force, and the destruction of enemy forces. Jomini, on the other hand, emphasized occupying enemy territory through carefully planned, rapid, and precise geometric maneuvers. In World War II, the three great Allied powers—Great Britain, the United States, and the Soviet Union—formed a Grand Alliance that was the key to victory. But the alliance partners did not share common political aims, and did not always agree on how the war should be fought.

This is a controversial book from the s that described Germany's war aims in World War 1 as expansive and imperialist in nature. The stress is on territorial aims, which included relations with the ports of the Low countries in the West, expansion into territories that were until recently under Soviet influence in the East and the idea of Mittelafrika (middle Africa) under which German Reviews:

A lot of focus is currently placed on the cultural, social and psychological facets of the Great War, much more than on the traditional issue of war aims.

This was the case during the Falklands War inwhen a weaker power, in Argentina, pursued limited aims in attempting to claim the nearby Falkland Islands (Malvinas) from Great Britain. In the end, failure to do so was the result of certain assumptions on which limited aims strategy relies. This book illustrates the relationship between British military policy and the development of British war aims during the opening years of the First World War.

Basing his work on a wide range of unpublished documentary sources, David French reassesses for the benefit of students and scholars alike what was meant by ‘a war of attrition’.

Rather, it is a scholarly history of the US Civil War but with a twist. That twist being how England (and other powers) sought to manage their influence upon the war. In other words, the book covers both the war in a direct sense as.

The traditional explanation for the start of World War 1 concerns a domino effect. Once one nation went to war, usually defined as Austria-Hungary’s decision to attack Serbia, a network of alliances which tied the great European powers into two halves dragged each nation unwillingly into a war which spiraled ever larger.The English war aims were equally simple: extract wealth from Virginia, preferably in the form of gold, silver, and jewels that would be valued in Europe.

They too hoped to avoid fighting. The English would have been happy to fight if it would lead to immediate looting of a hoard of gold/silver, as the Spanish experienced in Mexico and Peru.This chapter develops the argument that a critical characteristic of war aims—the degree to which attaining them requires target compliance—determines whether relative war-fighting capacity or resolve has a greater impact on a war's outcome.
