When Strategy Ends

Publikation: Bidrag til bog/antologi/rapportBidrag til bog/antologiForskningpeer review

This chapter deals with the end of strategy, that is, conflict termination and how strategic achievements are measured and evaluated. It claims that the modern intervention of choice by NATO and its allies are transformation wars and challenges the concept of victory in such wars. Through a comparative analysis of the Soviet intervention in Afghanistan 1979-89 and the present NATO operation it demonstrates how evaluation and adaptation are indispensable tools for sound strategy development as the variables of legitimacy, position, and time are molded by the dynamics of strategic execution.
