Abstract:

This thesis presents and tests a model for Entry, Conduct, and Termination of a limited war. Employing the Focused Comparison methodology, an attempt is made to relate this Limited War Model to a pair of historical case studies. The cases analyzed in this endeavor are the Korean War spanning the years 1950-1953 and the Falklands War of 1982. In the former the analysis is concentrated on the decisions of the United States, while the latter deals primarily with the deliberations of the United Kingdom. The findings of the study are encapsulated in the final chapter. Keywords include Limited War Korean War Falklands War Malvinas War Focused comparison.
