This chapter concludes the book with the point that strategy fully embraces law and justice, and that these two concepts are considered important to the success of military operations. It first poses the question: ‘what adds up to war during a time of terror’? The discussion then highlights the uncertainty around international criminal justice initiatives and discusses the various trends that place civil justice into war. The chapter’s last section is about the power of wrongdoing and ‘rightdoing’ in modern warfare, and assesses the inborn mutuality of war and war crimes.

Keywords:   law, justice, military operations, terror, international criminal justice, civil justice, wrongdoing, rightdoing, modern warfare
