What war is not a war of attrition? The ideal is still as quick of a war of annihilation (of the opposing army) as possible and usually it is not possible.

All recent wars are total war for the loser (and sometimes the 'winner'). As the loser’s forces retreat and their country overrun, the difference between military and civilian infrastructure is indistinguishable.

The South suffered not due to lack of food, but due to lack of infrastructure for moving the food.
