I"m wondering if any type of leader from any kind of era sassist the expression "We may have actually shed the battle, however not the war" that can be backed up with trusted resources.

You are watching: You may have won the battle

The meaning of the phrase (by my interpretation) is:

You"ve have a few failures freshly but there"s a lot even more to go, so focus on winning the following avenues.

But, this can be taken literally also.

I"m not asking for the beginning of the phrase, but rather if it was offered by any kind of leaders to maybe rise morale of their troops after seeing fifty percent their army dead, a lot of injured, woguy and children taken, villages on fire, and so on.

An exciting correlary is:

In April 1975, after the war was over, the colonel was in a delegation dispatched to Hanoi. In the airport, he got into a conversation with a North Vietnamese colonel named Tu that spoke some English and, as soldiers carry out, they began to talk shop. After a while, Colonel Summers said: “You know, you never before defeated us on the battlefield.” Colonel Tu assumed around that for a minute, then replied: “That may be so. But it is likewise irpertinent.”

Guru Gobind Singh(The tenth Guru of Sikhs) shed The Battle of Chamkaur. He lost his elder 2 sons in the battle & only a couple of of his army could make out from the location. His various other 2 sons(younger ones) & his Mother were recorded & killed by Wazir Khan & his army.After this event, Guru Gobind Singh wrote a series of letters to Aurangzeb which can be discovered on the Internet via the name of "Zafarnama" which implies "Epistle of Victory". In these letters, he emphasized that though he could have actually lost the fight however he has actually not lost this battle in between good & evil and his army will certainly climb aacquire & will certainly save fighting till the evil empire of Aurangzeb is ruined.

Following is a renowned verse from Zafarnama :-

When all has actually been tried, yet Justice is not in sight, It is then right to pick up the sword, It is then best to fight

A lot from the original letters has actually been lost. But still it is worth a read. you have the right to read it here

Then leaders from his re-joined army brushed up the Mughals from Punjab(the Punjab prior to 1947). And remainder is the soimg.org

Suggestion: Do read around Guru Gobind Singh & his Father who gave his life for the freedom to exercise any type of faith, after you check out Zafarnama. His father"s writings were compiled into Sri Guru Granth Sahib(The holy book of Sikhs) by the name "Salok Mahala 9".
