No. Term limits are term limits. FDR used WW2 as a campaign position for each of his 4 terms. When the people saw that the Presidency could become a tyranny, they passed the 22nd Amendment. This set the presidential term limit at 2 terms. The only exception to this is if you are a VP and the President dies or resigns. If this happens later than 2 years into the term, you may run for the presidency twice.

The government is set up in a way that we could transition power during a war. Generals do not change when the President does, so our wartime strategy wouldn't change.

No. Even in wartime he must be reelected. This happened with Abraham Lincoln (reelected during the Civil War) and Franklin D. Roosevelt (reelected during World War II).

And the 22nd Amendment limits the number of times a person can be elected President.
