Our Fall 2020 issue will have a broadly construed theme: Naval Integration and the Future of Naval Warfare

Re: January 2020 Handgrenade

The US began its participation in the Korean War with a goal of saving South Korea from being conquered by Communist forces. In September 1950 the US adopted a much more ambitious goal, conquering North Korea and uniting the Korean peninsula under anti-Communist rule. The US achieved the first goal but not the second. It would be perfectly reasonable to define "victory" in terms of the first goal, and say the US won the war. It would be equally reasonable to define "victory" in terms of the second, and say that the US did not win the war.
