    Encyclopedia article (War)

    War is conflict involving the use of arms and physical force between nations, countries, or other large-scale armed groups. Warfare is the conduct of war. Typically, warfare is mortal and lives of combatants are deliberately taken by enemy forces and the continued existence of a losing group as an entity is in doubt. (continued at Wikipedia)

    warfare refers to acts undertaken to destroy or undermine the strength of another, whereas war refers to a state of open, armed, often prolonged conflict carried on between nations, states, or parties.
