Human history is dominated by tales of wars and other conflicts. It has been estimated that in the period 1820 to 1990 there were at least 100 wars involving at least two nations. In the last century there were two world wars, the second killing 60 million people, mostly civilians. In the period 1946 to 1990 there were more than 100 wars in 60 countries or territories, killing another 16 million, mostly civilians.
