This chapter sheds new light on the relevance of understanding modern warfare. Its main focus is on the connection between the changed nature of warfare and strategy, as well as measuring success in terms of the link between issues of justice and legitimacy. The discussion includes the Multidimensional Trinity Cubed (Plus), which was established by Carl von Clausewitz. This trinity is composed of the population, the armed forces, and the government, and is considered as an important element in understanding the concepts of both success and legitimacy within modern warfare.

Keywords:   modern warfare, strategy, success, justice, legitimacy, Multidimensional Trinity Cubed, Carl von Clausewitz, population, armed forces, government
