The question was, which war had the most extreme effect on those it affected. In which case several wars stand out. For example the Second Punic War. You can't argue that there wasn't a huge effect on the Carthaginians, as they largely ceased to exist afterwards. Or the Mongol and Hun conquests in Europe and several of the peoples they erradicated. The long and slow Byzantine-Turk war resulted in the destruction of the last remnants of the Roman Empire and the resulting flight of the Byzantine population to Europe. Even though the Turks were gracious as far as 15th century conquerors go.

A better question would have been what war has had the greatest effect on the greatest number of people; or the greatest effect on history.

True.

I still think WWII, Jewish people were almost wiped out. The American Revolution didn't immediatly affect the world, just the British Empire

think about it, if America hadn't declared independence from England, Then we as a country would never have come out as the leader of the free world.
I agree. The U.S. starting a revolution also affected other countries than just us and Britian. France helped out the americans and also our revolution gave the French the Idea to to a little number of their own. The American revolution started the French revolution and both wars added together had a very devastating effect. I also think that there were other countrys that decided to start a revolution based on our examples and the French.

according to written history, a huge battle was fought in China 4000-5000 years ago between two tribe-alliance leaders, Huang Di and Yan Di, the result was that Huang Di won and Yan Di agreed to combine the two people together and they became the founding fathers of Chinese civilization--- that is why Chinese call themselves Yan Huang (Yan Di and Huang Di)'s children....

and that battle creates the Chinese civilization, a sole civilization that still is a world power today,

a battle with great impact huh?

true, and then china went on to do a lot of stuff. But still, did that really affect as many people as world war II did?

yeah, those tribe wars probably just fought between like thousands of people something, but it was really just like World War to the people during that time.

but I do agree that WW2 is definately the most influential war in maybe the recent couple hundred years.
