W 25

25.  Charny asks:   In so far as there are two types of war, and the one kind should  be fought differently than the other, as some say.  One kind is guerre guerriable, which takes place as a dispute from one frontier to another in disdain of one lord for another, and which often is able to move from one frontier to another in a variety of ways.   The other kind of war is the desire to conquer a country, which one claims as lord but another lord holds.   And this kind of war of conquest ought not to be waged.  Some say war is more suitable in the manner of guerre guerriable.  And so I ask how a war of conquest ought to be conducted.
