The world has witnessed catastrophic conflicts throughout its history. These bloodiest wars completely changed the fate of nations and left a lasting impact on the world order. SSPDaily has prepared the top five of the bloodiest wars in human history.

World War II

The Second World War is considered the largest conflict in human history, lasting from 1939 to 1945 and engulfing most countries of the world, claiming about 70 million lives. Significant developments in military equipment and tactics, as well as large-scale attacks on civilians, resulted in huge human losses. The war also had a profound impact on the global political landscape and, ultimately, on the formation of the United Nations.

World War I

The First World War, also known as the Great War, lasted from 1914 to 1918 and resulted in the deaths of more than 20 million people (military and civilians). It was a war of unprecedented proportions, involving the use of weapons and equipment, including tanks and chemical weapons. It also led to the collapse of empires and prepared the ground for the geopolitical upheavals that ultimately contributed to the outbreak of World War II.

The Taiping Rebellion

The Taiping Rebellion, which took place in China from 1850 to 1864, led to one of the deadliest civil wars in history. It is estimated that 20 to 30 million people died during the conflict caused by religious, economic, and political factors. The rebellion had a profound impact on Chinese society and the ruling Qing dynasty.

An Lushan Rebellion

The An Lushan Rebellion, which took place in China from 755 to 763, is one of the bloodiest wars in history. It led to the deaths of about 36 million people, mainly due to internal strife within the Tang Dynasty. The rebellion led to widespread devastation and contributed to a significant population decline.

Mongol conquests

The Mongol conquests led by Genghis Khan and his successors were a series of military campaigns in the 13th century that resulted in massive death and destruction in Asia and Eastern Europe. According to one estimate, the conquests resulted in the loss of about 37.75-60 million lives, making them one of the deadliest conflicts in history.
