Noun (usually military term): an officially recognized state of hostility or war between two or more belligerents; often expressed as the phrase "in anger", now commonly used to describe any state of conflict between opposing parties.
As of the current date, the United States remains the only nation ever to have used atomic weapons in anger, against the Japanese Empire in August 1945, in order to bring an end to Japanese resistance during World War II.
