A MILITARY HISTORY TIMELINE OF WAR AND CONFLICT ACROSS THE GLOBE 3000 BC to AD 2008 This timeline is presented in order to give the user the ability to see what major conflicts were going on across the globe in any given year or time period. With the thousands of conflicts that man has been engaged in over the past 5,000+ years of recorded history, I have been able to include the major ones and many of the minor ones. This is an ongoing project which will take a great deal of time to finish but, in the meanwhile, it still does present some very interesting information. Most of the listings are color coded according to the continent or continents on which the conflict occurred. My primary source of information is George C. Kohn's Dictionary of Wars. Please note that most of the dates for events that occurred prior to about 400 B.C. are only approximate. The relative dearth of historical data for many of these events does not allow for exact dating. If you disagree with any of the facts that I have presented, please let me know.
