    Hollow victory

    What is the term for a "hollow" victory? It comes from an ancient battle I believe.

    Re: Hollow victory

    I believe you are looking for the term "Pyrrhic Victory." Although it technically isn't exactly a hollow victory. It refers to a victory with devasting consequences to the victor.
