Canadian soldier And His Son In New Westminster, Canada, October 1, 1940


A world war is a war involving many or most of the world's most powerful and populous countries. World wars span multiple countries on multiple continents, with battles fought in multiple theatres.
The term is applied to the two major international conflicts that occurred during the 20th century:
World War I, or the First World War (1914–1918)
World War II, or the Second World War (1939–1945)
In terms of human technological history, the scale of these wars was enabled by the technological advances of the Second Industrial Revolution and resulting globalization that allowed global power projection and mass production of military hardware, but wars on such a scale have not been repeated due to the onset of the Atomic Age and the resulting danger of mutual assured destruction.
