Victors generally describe the 'Scorched Earth Policy' as a military strategy used during warfare. This policy involves the deliberate destruction of one's own resources that might be useful to an enemy, such as food, water sources, transportation, communication infrastructure, and even the cultural or economic assets. This is done when the military force retreats from a territory. From the perspectives of victors, this strategy could be seen as a defensive measure, making it challenging for an advancing enemy to sustain its troops. However, it's important to note that this tactic often leads to various hardships for the civilian population and can cause significant environmental damage.
