Delving into the various types of wars, this book shows that the doctrine of classical war, which belongs to the school of Clausewitz, depicts a comprehensive, universal, systematic and relatively simple picture portraying that the significance of victory in war is to achieve its political goal, and that this victory is achieved through military engagement. The aim of this book is to analyse the situations and circumstances in which the objectivity of the classical doctrine is decreased.
