  • Apr 11 2012: It's possible to lose some battles yet still win the war. The Allied forces at the Battle of the Bulge and the ANZAC forces at the battle of Gallipoli aretwo that come to mind. However if you are asking for winning a war without winning any battles I dont see how that could ever occur.
    • Apr 11 2012: HI Robert,

      Your point about losing battles, but winning wars is a good one. But, just for the record, the Battle of the Bulge was a major allied victory.

      Thanks,
      Doug
