    At Level

    Please help me with some usage issue of 'level':

    "It was a conflict at/on the level of World War II."
    "The issue should be dealt with at/on the national level."

    Should I use the preposition 'at' or 'on'?

    In my view, it is your choice.

    So, it is ambiguous?

    No — it's optional.
