Actually, I don't really like the topic above. I don't like war..because war means bombing, tank, attack, gun shoots everywhere then many innocent people get killed. Women and childrens lost their father..their brother. No place to stay because it ruin by bomb. War is nothing but human ego. To show  whose the strong and powerfull. In war there is no winner...even they won the war. What exactly war is? War is a conflict carried on by force of arms, as between nations or between parties within a nation; warfare, as by land, sea, or air. (a state or period of armed hostility or active military operations: The two nations were at war with each other a contest carried on by force of arms, as in a series of battles)
War is an organized and often prolonged conflict that is carried out by states or non-state. It is generally characterised by extreme violence, social disruption and economic destruction. War should be understood as an actual, intentional and widespread armed conflict between political communities and therefore is defined as a form of political violence or intervention. The set of techniques used by a group to carry out war is known as warfare. An absence of war is usually called peace.
Here, I'll give you a list of 10 Most Famous War in History ever :

1. World War II
World War II ( WWII or WW2 ), also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. It involved the vast majority of the world's nations including all of the great powers, eventuallyforming two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than 100 million people, from more than 30 different countries. In a state of "total war ", the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians, including the Holocaust, the strategic bombing of enemy industrial and/or population centers. In World War II first use of nuclear weapon, it resulted in an estimated 50 million to 85 million fatalities. These made World War II the deadliest conflict in human history .
2. World War I
The main causes of World War I, which began in central Europe in late July 1914, included many factors, such as the conflicts and hostility between the great European powers of the four decades leading up to the war. Militarism, alliances, imperialism and nationalism played major roles in the conflict as well. The immediate origins of the war, however, lay in the decisions taken by statesmen and generals during the July Crisis of 1914 caused by the assassination of Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife Sophie by Gavrilo Princip , an ethnic Serb and Yugoslav nationalist from the group Young Bosnia , which was supported by the Black Hand , a nationalist organization in Serbia.
3. American Civil War
The American Civil War, also known as the War Between the States or simply the Civil War was a civil war fought from 1861 to 1865, after seven Southern slave states declared their secession and formed the Confederate States of America (the "Confederacy" or the "South", which grew to include eleven states). The states that remained in the Union were known as the "Union " or the "North". The war had its origin in the fractious issue of slavery, especially the extension of slavery into the western territories. Foreign powers did not intervene. After four years of bloody combat that left over 600,000 Union and Confederate soldiers dead and destroyed much of the South's infrastructure, the Confederacy collapsed, slavery was abolished and the difficult Reconstruction process of restoring national unity and guaranteeing civil rights to the freed slaves began.
4. Crusades War
The Crusades were a series of military campaigns during the time of Medieval England against the Muslims of the Middle East. In 1076, the Muslims had captured Jerusalem, the most holy of holy places for Christians. Jesus had been born in nearby Bethlehem and Jesus had spent most of his life in Jerusalem. He was crucified on Calvary Hill, also in Jerusalem. There was no more important place on Earth than Jerusalem for a true Christian which is why Christians called Jerusalem the "City of God". However, Jerusalem was also extremely important for the Muslims as Muhammad, the founder of the Muslim faith, had been there and there was great joy in the Muslim world when Jerusalem was captured. Thus the Christians fought to get Jerusalem back while the Muslims fought to keep Jerusalem. These wars were to last nearly 200 years.
5. Vietnam War
The Vietnam War also known as the Second Indochina War and known in Vietnam as the Resistance War Against America or simply the American War, was a Cold War, era proxy war that occurred in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia from 1 November 1955 to the fall of Saigon on 30 April 1975. This war followed the First Indochina War and was fought between North Vietnam, supported by the Soviet Union, China and other communist allies and the government of South Vietnam supported by the United States and other anti-communist allies.The Viet Cong (also known as the National Liberation Front, or NLF), a lightly armed South Vietnamese communist common front aided by the North, fought a guerrilla war against anti-communist forces in the region. The People's Army of Vietnam engaged in a more conventional war, at times committing large units into battle.
6. Iraq - Iran War - Gulf Conflict
The Iran–Iraq War, also known as the First Persian Gulf War was an armed conflict between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Republic of Iraq lasting from September 1980 to August 1988, making it the 20th century's longest conventional war. It was initially referred to in English as the "Gulf War" prior to the Persian Gulf War of the early 1990s. The Iran–Iraq War began when Iraq invaded Iran via air and land on 22 September 1980. It followed a long history of border disputes and was motivated by fears that the Iranian Revolution in 1979 would inspire insurgency among Iraq's long-suppressed Shia majority as well as Iraq's desire to replace Iran as the dominant Persian Gulf state. For the next six years, Iran was on the offensive.
7. The Trojan War
The Trojan War, is a war between Greeks and the defenders of the city of Troy in Anatolia sometime in the late Bronze Age, has grabbed the imagination for millennia. A conflict between Mycenaeans and Hittites may well have occurred, but its representation in epic literature such as Homer ’s Iliad is almost certainly more myth than reality. Nevertheless, it has defined and shaped the way ancient Greek culture has been viewed right up to the 21st century CE. The story of gods and heroic warriors is perhaps one of the richest single surviving sources from antiquity and offers insights into the warfare, religion, customs and attitudes of the ancient Greeks.
8. 'The Cold War'  (USA vs USSR*)
The Cold War was a sustained state of political and military tension between powers in the Western Block, the United States as a NATO allies and others fight powers in the Eastern Block the Soviet Union and its allies in Warsaw Pact. Historians have not fully agreed on the dates, but 1947–1991 is common. It was "cold" because there was no large, scale fighting directly between the two sides. The Cold War split the temporary wartime alliance against Nazi Germany, leaving the USSR and the US as two superpowers with profound economic and political differences over totalitarian communism and capitalist democracy.
9. War in Afghanistan.
The War in Afghanistan (2001–present ) refers to the intervention by North Atlantic Treat Organisation (NATO) and allied forces in the ongoing Afghan civil war. The war followed the September 11 attacks, and its public aims were to dismantle al-Qaeda and eliminate its safe haven by removing the Taliban from power. U.S. President George W. Bush demanded that the Taliban hand over Osama bin Laden and expel al-Qaeda. The Taliban requested that bin Laden leave the country, but declined to extradite him without evidence of his involvement in the 9/11 attacks. The United States refused to negotiate and launched Operation Enduring Freedom on 7 October 2001 with the United Kingdom. The two were later joined by other forces, including the Northern Alliance. The U.S. and its allies drove the Taliban from power and built military bases near major cities across the country.
10. Persian War
The Greco-Persian Wars also often called the Persian Wars, Greek : were a series of conflicts between the Achaemenid Empire of Persia and city-states of the Hellenic world that started in 499 BC and lasted until 449 BC. The collision between the fractious political world of the Greeks and the enormous empire of the Persians began when Cyrus the Great conquered Ionia in 547 BC. Struggling to rule the independent-minded cities of Ionia, the Persians appointed tyrants to rule each of them. This would prove to be the source of much trouble for the Greeks and Persians alike.
