A War of liberation is a conflict which is primarily intended to bring freedom or independence to a nation or group. Examples might include a war to overthrow a colonial power, or to remove a dictator from power. Such wars are often unconventional.[1][2][3] When a war is large - but not complete - overlap between a War of liberation and a War of Independence can occur.
