Re: Winning.

For what it's worth, Wellington, on surveying the wretched state of his troops after winning the battle of Waterloo, is attributed with saying:

"Next to a battle lost, the greatest misery is a battle won."

After Waterloo he was made Commander in Chief, but he chose the role of a diplomat rather than a general, and never fought again. Interesting, na?
