    ¿Cómo se dice en inglés "victoria pírrica"?
    Una victoria pírrica es aquella en la que el ganador pierder más que el vencido, o al menos la victoria no le sirve para nada y solo le estorba.

    muchas gracias.

    Veo que WR traduce pyrrhics en pírrica, pero no traduce pírrica en pyrrhics.

    Right... but since it was written as "phyrrhic" in the quote I thought I'd mention it for clarity's sake, since others may view this thread in the future and pick up the incorrect spelling.

    Esto ocurre mucho con los diccionarios de WR.
