Franco-Spanish War[edit]

Under the Wars of Religion, the Franco-Spanish War is listed for the years 1589-1598. If one jumps to this entry one is given a choice among articles on a war of 1653-59, 1808-14 or 1820-23, none of which is the supposed war of 1589-98. Someone with knowledge of this era should either add an entry for the Franco-Spanish War of 1589-98 or delete the jump. LAWinans (talk) 20:48, 25 August 2008 (UTC)

American War of Independence[edit]

In many ways the "American War of Independence" was cold war parlance a Proxy war in the long struggle between England and France. Just because a global superpower may be at war with several different opponents at the same time, it does not mean that the wars are linked and that the opponents are in a close alliance. For this reason I have moved the other wars which Britain was fighting from being viewed as subwars of the "American Revolutionary War" Philip Baird Shearer 22:28, 21 Apr 2005 (UTC)

Why is Mysore listed as a participant? Misplaced from a (chronologically) nearby war in India?—Odysseus1479 21:22, 17 May 2016 (UTC)
