Top Ten Worst Wars In History


The Top Ten

1 World War II

I put a lot of research in this war, it's a very iconic war both in history and movie, and media alike. With a lot of civilians death and many men who sacrifice their life to defend their homeland from the Genesis of the Nazi and The Japanese Imperial.

Many gave their life to serve in war and protect their country all to stop Hitler. This was a bloody scary murderous war you would not like to be in!

It helped bring the world to a deeper understanding of warfare, and brought the US to the height of it's power.

Hitler has killed a lot of civilians. - Fullwalking2

2 World War I

Not sure about death toll, but for sheer horror WWI is definitely worse than WWII. A sampling of the horrors: poison gas, trenches, mortars, bombs, machine guns, tanks, etc. , most of them seen for the first time.

WWII was bad for sure, but it really shaped the way the world is today, further elevating the US, the next generation, and the women's movement, to name a few.

World war one was the deadliest conflict ever it killed 17 million people and it was thought that war to end all wars because the deadly conflict on country's and the allies won.

The poison gas for trench warfare was chlorine it will fell like someone is putting an ignited blowtorch to you're sinuses

This war caused Germany's economy to collapse which led to the rise of Hitler and ultimately caused ww2.

3 Napoleonic Wars

You mean " invasion of the little corporal".

4 American Civil War

"not deadly" yet it's called the bloodiest war in american history and had the most american deaths, a lot of them from diseases, and family members killing each other, and it lead up to the death of abraham lincoln as well. I wouldn't say this is the worst war in world history, but definitely in american history.

More americans died in this war then in ANY OTHER WAR COMBINED!

Slavery is bad! Get over it!

Yes it was! didn't matter how inaccurate muskets were! people had new weapons to mow down the enemy in brutal nasty ways! - Mikbiter15
