Thirty Years War in the 17th Century (or more the peace of Westphalia which ended it).

Ushered in the whole idea of sovereign nation states upon which pretty much all later wars depended. The nation-state institutionalised diplomacy and the military, and this European model was eventually to spread worldwide through colonialism. Sovereignty, and the right of nations not to be oppressed or influenced by foreign nations has been the route of pretty much all non-revolutionary or civil wars since then.

Very scary Gizzle. Glad we don't agree on #5 or we might be charged with being multis.

You guys every war changed the wold somehow.

War is not for you to die for your country, but for those basterds over there, to die for theirs.

I often wonder how drastically the Greek invasion of Egypt has changed our world.

Egypt were a technological superpower in some respects and far behind in others.

Had they been alowed to grow and be more i wonder how different things would be today.

I wonder if the romans would have beaten egypt.

I only know a little about egypts wars but they do fascinate me

In no particular order:

* US Civil War (removed secession as a possibility, forged modern US)
* English Civil War (modern army structure developed through NMA)
* WW I & II (ended the imperial age, for the main)
* Napoleaonic Wars (United seeral groups of states into nations, standardised many legal systems through Code Napolean etc)
* No idea whats its called, but the unification of China
Wether you think you can, or think you can't - you're right

Bold- because it was when the imperialists were running over the world and every cont. counted in the fight for global freedom from the capitalists.
