Notes[edit]

This list had previously resided at the "War" article, but had just been deleted from that page by another editor. While I agreed with that editor that the "War" article was not really an appropriate home for this list, I also felt that this list is certainly noteworthy, and that it still deserved to be kept in Wikipedia more or less in its original format. Therefor I created this list-page here in order to preserve this list. Scott P. (talk) 14:11, 22 July 2011 (UTC)

The addition of the 'Muslim conquest of the Indian subcontinent' reflects over 5 centuries of history and not a comparable event to the other items in the list. It is misleading.

What about Nagorno-Karabakh War[edit]

Hugenot wars are redundant[edit]

They're already mentioned as 'French Religious Wars'. Does somebody know what of those two is the more common handle? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 88.79.237.18 (talk) 19:48, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

Conflicts, which were not defined as wars[edit]

Not all conflicts are defined wars, and hence this is not a list of coups, rebellions, uprisings, operations, battles, etc. Some of conflicts were defined both as rebellions and wars, so they belong here (like the First and Second Kurdish-Iraqi Wars, which are also rebellions, and the Black September in Jordan, which is called by sources a Jordanian or Jordanian-Palestinian civil war.Greyshark09 (talk) 20:05, 24 July 2011 (UTC)

AndresHerutJaim, you are kindly asked not to engage into an edit war and avoid all my attempts for conversation. Not all military operations are wars, and there is no source which supports your claim (if there is pls bring it). There is a special List of military operations for listing army operations, so you can insert it there. Thank you.Greyshark09 (talk) 17:52, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Chinese Wars[edit]

The sources for the Chinese wars are sloppy, seemingly unreliable, inconsistent with one another (providing they even exist) and the figures look exaggerated, to say the least. Also, figures from that time are going to be unreliable. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.2.172.202 (talk) 11:15, 31 January 2013 (UTC)

lim Conquest of India ==

Including all the conflict between Hindus and Muslims from 1000 to 1525 as a single "war" seems highly dubious. 129.72.147.184 (talk) 19:34, 14 June 2013 (UTC) this information lacks precision, since it's critical to has a trusted source of information far away from extremism and misleading. Balqam (talk) 14:08, 10 May 2014 (UTC) This information Hasn't any trusted source , I think it shouldn't be here with that weak precision

Death tolls needed[edit]

The following wars from 1900-1919 are missing because I have so far not found a death toll. 1900-1919:

War on Drugs / Terror[edit]

Are there any numbers for these "wars" that the United States and other countries participate in?

addition of second punic war.[edit]

As headline suggest's, not sure if second punic war is included, if so defiantly not with the correct number of 613,000+ — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.108.169.232 (talk) 03:23, 25 March 2014 (UTC)

Addition of Paraguayan War[edit]

Paraguayan War was the bloodiest conflict of South America ever and was the most devastating conflict in relation of total population: almost 70% of Paraguayan, Formosan and Entre-Rios population were killed and almost all Mato Grosso cities and towns were destroyed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 189.115.92.34 (talk) 13:27, 6 May 2014 (UTC)

Not a wiki question but one of naming..[edit]

Why is the Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) separate from World War II?

From article : 60,669,200-84,589,300 – World War II (1939–1945) and 20,000,000 – Second Sino-Japanese War (1937–1945) are separate entries?
