Abstract:

Most wars start over a matter of principle, but the reality of war has little to do with justice. For centuries, nations have settled questions of power, territory, national pride and sovereignty with military force. At any given time there are about twenty wars being waged, and in all of them, those involved have a goal to achieve which they believe outweighs the cost of war. Dyer looks at recent wars, including the conflict in the Falkland Islands, to duscuss the confrontation between abstract principle and unsavory reality in warfare.
