Summary: Does war ever just end? Is there a so-called endstate? Or does it evolve? And if it evolves, does it do so naturally or does leadership, or perhaps an exhaustive plan, make the transition from war to peace simpler and more efficient? What happens if the leader is weak and the plan is lacking? What happens to the indigenous population affected by the war? If there is no plan and the leaders are weak, is the natural outcome for the ill-fated inhabitants a political and domestic crisis? If so, then shouldn't that result be exactly what we should plan on preventing even before the guns begin to shoot? This book will make an effort to answer these questions and more. It is a look at what happens beyond the guns and steel, beyond bullets and sweat, beyond the confusion and angst of war.
