    What is the second most read and studied conflict in the history of the world besides WWII?

    Why do you believe it is the world's second most popular after World War II?

    The second most read and studied conflict in world history after WWII is the conflict between mankind and mother earth called Global Warming.

      Unexpected answer, Awesome Harry. Not in a military vein but little doubt correct, despite the pro and con controversy concerning Global Warming

    The battle between my sister and me that lasted 10 years.  Sorry, Alastar - just kidding. I really do not know for sure, so will not guess. I am very interested, though, in what the answer is, so will be following your question.

      Okay - I will guess that it is the American Revolutionary War, 1775 - 1783. I think it is the most read and studied (after WWII) because it involved Britain and the 13 colonies plus Indian allies on both side, France, Spain, and the Dutch Republic.

      Your right in that the Revolutionary War lasted a long time and involved a lot of counties. Rather important to world history too. The true answer is coming up Phyllis, stay tuned!

      I am holding my breath. Mention history and quiz me on it is exciting for me.

    The war that is the most talked about, beyond wwII is the vietnam war. One, mistakes were made by the government: they forgot to honor and protect the men and women, who they sent to support south vietnam. Two, many community and social groups began during this turbulent time.
    It was the sixties, and the war against communism, oppression, freedom of speech, and personal beliefs was, and still is, in full swing.

      Good guess for good reasons, BrianRD. The Vietnam War really came home to me as  a little boy the day I opened up the latest Life mag in 1969...the issue with one week's killed in 'Nam. Haunting face memories to this day.

    Ala star....It is said to always respond with the very first answer that comes to us.  Thus, I'm gonna have to go with The Civil War. 
    I have 2 questions for you.  1.) Is this for EXTRA points? and 2.) What's the prize??
    If I'm wrong, I refuse to take a make-up test!!

      Your intuition earns you the silver, effer! As to the question #1 this is a survey for Family Feud (joshin') and the prize is all mine in hearing from you!

    Oh most definitely Civil War (war between the states)! I bet more books have been written about it too. It had a good cause but so much bad was done in the name of justice. I based my poem Still Magnolia on that and the many things she must have witnessed. Wonder if we will see war between us in this country again? There will be no beauty of it for history if so I am sure and it will surely be our last war.

      The civil war had a common bond. Slavery was the South stronghold, and fought to keep their slaves with them. The North fought for freedom of slavery.
      The battleground, in this country, has already begun. It is not only fought in the alleys, of citie

      Such a shame too when I think Americans were pretty much becoming one on common ground.

      Alastar Packerposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      And your most definitely spot on, Jackie! Being first you of course get the gold medal. Your poem Steel Magnolia expresses just one of so many reasons why this world defining conflict comes in second.

      That is great Alastar & yes there were so many things about the Civil War wasn't there? My magnolia was still although steel may have been better I didn't want to plagiarize. lol I even put a few bullets thru her for guys like you! Good to see yo

      Hi Alastar, you chose a great answer by Jackie as best answer. She appreciates you choosing her answer as best too, but she was unable to comment as she was already last to comment here.HP should fix it so that one can say thank you.

      Well now that Faith commented I get to also! So thanks Alastar! What an honor!! Hope you aren't finished with us here! We miss you and all your great stories.

    With this question being global in scope, I would think that it'd be one of the Chinese Rebellions or Civil Wars, since the population of China is roughly a third of the world's population (last I heard). 

    China's most recent internal conflict of significance was the 1927 to 1950 Civil War with over 7 and a half million casualties. Prior to that was the Dungan Revolt from 1862 to 1877 with its ten million casualties.  Previous Chinese rebellions of importance were  the Teiping Rebellion of 1850 to 1864 with twenty million and the largest by far, the fall of the Ming Dynasty in a rebellion that lasted throughout most of the 17th century with twenty-five million casualties.

    But then, I could be wrong!

    The American Civil War is the likely answer here in the states.

    Interesting question Alastar!

      WW I is a good answer, but  does it have something to do with Ghengis Khan?

      Bronze is good and you earned it, stevarino. That is some excellent info on the Chinese conflicts. I saw where you've published a hub on the neglected Stone's River battle. ASAP read and comment here!

    The answer has to be World War I.  That conflict killed more than 35 million people and affected most of the world.

    1. Alastar Packer profile image82
      Alastar Packerposted 3 years agoin reply to this

      WWI is an excellent guess, Writer Fox. For new inventions, casualties and mano a moan mayhem and blood few other wars come close to it. Another one that always has something new to discover.

      Does that mean you will choose mine as the best answer?

      Fox....This means... I got the answer right and you need to send me a stuffed, cuddly fox as a prize.

    I think it is the Vietnam War. I was just in Hanoi and going through pictures of demonstrations in different countries made me shudder. There were lots of demonstrations in the U.S. as well and many people still suffer from the effects of this war not just in Vietnam but also in the U.S., Cambodia and Laos.

      So true, aesta1.The detritus of Vietnam was more than just physical destruction. Those men, and women, came home in many instances to a hostile public against them. That wrong was righted with time in some resects thank goodness.
