Any judgements about political success or failure in war at the strategic level must be based on a clear understanding of the initial political objectives of both sides. In this way, the relevance of war as a tool of policy can be assessed in accordance with the aims and the outcomes of war. Carl von Clausewitz precisely argues that “the political object is the goal, war is the means of reaching it, and means can never be considered in isolation from their purpose[1]”.
