2. English Civil War
3. Nine Years' War
4. Thirty Years' War
5. War of the Austrian Succession
6. Anglo-Dutch Wars
7. War of the Spanish Succession
8. Seven Years' War
9. Second Northern War
10. War of the Polish Succession

The French Revolutionary and Napoleonic Wars, for sure. After that, probably World War I. 30 Years War is pretty interesting too.

Anyone else feel like this has to be a joke?

The Thirty Years War, because I was stationed in Heidelberg, and I know the SchloŖ was destroyed in one of the sieges.

No wars are my favorite - how about none of the above.

- Alexander the Greatís conquests (especially as he goes farther east)
- Wars of the Diadochi
- Punic Wars
- Revolutionary War (American)
- Franco-Prussian War
- World War I
- World War II

Popular wars that I find interesting but for some reason canít get that into at a deeper level include all the Mongol-related wars, the War of the Roses and Vietnam.

The most interesting ones for me are:

1. Vietnam War - I was always interested in the whole era politically and culturally
2. World War II
3. Korea War
4. American Civil War
5. World War I

Overall the Cold War is the era I'm most interested in historically, although not technically a war itsself.

War isn't what I'm most interested in in terms of history
