It wasn't a great war for either side. Both sides knew hardly anything about the methods of warfare of the other side, employed woefully inadequate tactics and spent more time stumbling around than actually advancing their effort to actually repel or intrude. The thing was an impasse that was in the first case resolved by retreat and in the second by the great storm acting as unexpected tie-breaker.

What I find so fascinating about this war how it illustrates the importance of intelligence for the military. You could have the greatest army in the world, and it is useless if your commanders know nothing about the enemy's tactics and equipment, and your own tactics and equipment are designed to be effective against a completely different enemy.
