It was 'former' because of the 'Later Three Years War' that it is paired with in the histories. Both of these conflicts led to a consolidation of the traditional military power of the Minamoto in the eastern provinces. Their role in these wars was part of Yoritomo's claim to legitimacy when he formed the Kamakura Bakufu.
