In a sentence like this "It was the last years of the war", how can we show those time periods? To me it sounds weird to use a plural form after last. Could you kindly say if it's right and natural? If not how can we express it? Should we say final years?
Thanks a lot.
We'd be unlikely to say 'It was the last years', but 'during the last years of the war' is possible, provided the war lasted many years.
