"I wonder why humans continue to fight, I wonder if warriors will ever disappear from this world. Never. There will always be warriors. And there will always be war."

Formal wars are protracted, large-scale, violent conflicts, containing several battles; that often last for a number of years and mark an era such as the Human-Covenant War. Informally, the word can be used for any long-term struggle, and has been informally used to describe isolated battles such as the Second Ark Conflict and the Battle for Zeta Halo.[2][3] These smaller continuous conflicts are traditionally called battles, although this terminology is not always applied to conflicts involving aircraft, missiles or bombs alone, in the absence of ground troops or naval forces. A group of combatants and their support is called an army on land, a navy at sea or in space, and air force in the air. Wars may be prosecuted simultaneously in one or more different theaters. Within each theater, there may be one or more consecutive military campaigns. A military campaign includes not only fighting but also intelligence, troop movements, supplies, propaganda, and other components.
