Is "I have never gone to war." a correct expression?


I am learning English as my second question.

I would like to ask a question to native English speakers.

My Grammar text book says that you can use "have gone to" instead of " have been to" in the United States.

How is it in England?

Do the following two sentences have same meaning?

I have never gone to war.

I have never been to war.

I would appreciate it if you could give me some advice.


I have never been to war.

He has never been to war.

I never went to war.

He never went to war.

When still there;

I have gone to war.

He has gone to war.

I have gone on holiday. Whilst away.

I have been on holiday. Once returned.


hey see for this.
