Are you a history buff? Do you love to study the strategies that led different factions into battle? Do you like to read about what caused a country and its peoples to take up arms? Do you get into long conversations about how these battles will continue to affect the world we live in for centuries to come? If you said "yes" to any of these questions, this is the quiz for you! To find out how much you know about the world and the battles that have been won and lost throughout history, we challenge you to take this easy and fun quiz!

Wars between countries and regions, battles within nations, and the treaties created to bring peace have formed the world we live in today. The Battles of Hastings, Gettysburg, Waterloo, Agincourt, Tours, Stalingrad, and Trafalgar are just a few of thousands of skirmishes that have taken place since the beginning of civilization and have had permanent effects on the world as we know it. Boundaries have been made, leaders have been deposed of and installed, armies formed, and lives have been lost for centuries. The devastating wars that took place over that time raged for more years than anyone had anticipated. The most recent battles and wars in history—the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Spanish-American War, World Wars I and II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are still influencing world matters. But they are not the only pieces of this complicated historical puzzle.

You have your own battle ahead with this quiz, and we wish you the best of luck!
