War is a reciprocated, armed conflict, between two or more non-congruous entities, aimed at reorganising a subjectively designed, geo-politically desired result. In the book, On War, theoretician Carl Von Clausewitz calls war the "continuation of political intercourse, carried on with other means."
War is not necessarily considered to be the same as occupation, murder, or genocide because of the reciprocal nature of the violent struggle, and the organized nature of the units involved.
A civil war is a war between factions of citizens of one country (such as in the English Civil War). A proxy war is a war that results when two powers use third parties as substitutes for fighting each other directly.
War is also a cultural entity, is not linked to any single type of political organization or society. The conduct of war extends along a continuum, from the almost universal tribal warfare that began well before recorded human history, to wars between city states, nations, or empires
