But the correct collocation is ‘to wage war’. Do you know what a ‘strong collocation’ is?

Strong collocation: words that don’t match with many other words, so it is a strong connection because there are very few acceptable words to say the same thing.
“Wrought” is a very formal and literary form only used in the past tense: -The storm wrought havoc in the south./ - Her poems are well-wrought and intensely personal
