The Importance of Phase IV Planning, a quote

A quote from an expert on war:

“If you concentrate exclusively on victory, with no thought for the after effect, you may be too exhausted to profit by the peace, while it is almost certain that the peace will be a bad one, containing the germs of another war.” — B. H. Liddell Hart (Liddell Hart, B.H., Strategy, New York: Praeger, 1967, p. 366.)
