Paul van Hooft investigates how national experiences with war shape post-war grand strategies, and specifically how the experiences with victory and defeat in the Second World War shaped the post-war beliefs and behaviour of the major belligerent states. His central argument is that victory increases the propensity of states to use force and decreases their propensity to use diplomacy, while defeat fosters the opposite.
