World War IV, also known as Non-Nuclear World War IV and the Second Vietnam War, was a conventional-weapons-based global conflict that lasted from 2015 to 2024. It resulted from the United States withdrawing itself from Nuclear Arms Control treaties with Russia and China. The two countries then began to build up their military forces, leading to the war. The conflict ended with both sides suffering major losses and neither willing to give up their nuclear weapons.
In addition to these two nuclear powers, several other nations had limited involvement in the war: Iraq, Iran, North Korea, Syria, and Venezuela. These countries used conventional weapons against each other's military forces or political organizations within their own borders. Some also claimed that they had been targets of nuclear attacks by one or more of the above countries but none would admit it. No country admitted to using nuclear weapons during this period.
The war started when President Donald J. Trump announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia. Russia responded by launching a series of missiles at American positions in eastern Europe, which led the United States to increase its military presence in the region. This increased tension between the two countries led to more threats being made by politicians on both sides regarding possible future actions.
See World War I summary for a summary of the article. World War I, often known as the First World War or the Great War, was an international struggle that engulfed much of Europe, as well as Russia, the United States, the Middle East, and other countries, in 1914–18. It was the most widespread war in history, with millions of soldiers on all sides; it claimed hundreds of thousands of lives.
The war began when German Kaiser Wilhelm II made a political decision to go to war against France and Russia. These two nations were allies of Germany's rival power, Britain.
It was also known as "the war to end all wars" because no one wanted another devastating conflict. The major powers had learned their lesson from World War I and took steps to ensure that it would never happen again. They formed alliances and set up organizations like the League of Nations to prevent future conflicts.
So the war that started with German aggression ended with a peace treaty that prevented any further wars between the major powers.
However, smaller countries that were not so lucky as to have allies to protect them were forced to fight on several fronts, which caused many problems for them. Some countries were able to win victories on certain fronts but eventually been defeated due to lack of support from abroad. Others surrendered before being attacked, allowing them to avoid war but still suffering economic hardship due to strict terms of surrender.
The word is commonly used to refer to two significant international conflicts that happened throughout the twentieth century: World War I (1914–1918) and World War II (1939–1945). However, others have been waged over large parts of the globe at various times in history.
There are three main categories of world wars: continental wars, global wars, and revolutionary wars. A fourth category, civil wars, involves two or more states or groups within a state fighting each other with the use of armed force.
They differ in that continental wars involve only one or a few large countries while global wars include almost every country in the world. Finally, revolutionary wars are limited to a single country as they are defined by a major change in government policy or opinion.
In conclusion, there have been three global wars in modern history and they are known as World Wars I, II, and III. The first World War started in 1914 and ended in 1918, the second World War began in 1939 and ended in 1945, and the third World War began in 1949 and has not yet come to an end.
