Refers to the First World War, 1914-1918. Not as popular as World War Two is today, as American film producers have not made as many films about it, most likely because it would make the U.S look weak the U.S. as their country had very little to do with the war.

The Great War was the war that defined warfare for probably a very long time. Armies, unused to light infantry battles and the use of tactics over numbers, found themselves in a stalemate, "dug in" at opposing trenches that stretched for miles and miles. This warfare was particularly gruesome, as the cramped and dangerous conditions led to many serious diseases, both mental and physical. The phrase "over the top" was created in this war, when frustrated army commanders ordered their soldiers to simply get out of their trenches and charge the enemy positions. When units went "over the top," it was common for the entire unit to be completely wiped out, resulting in the deaths of thousands in a few hours.

The war itself was brought about due to rising tensions in Europe and the web of alliances that existed. When the Austrian Archduke Ferdinand was assassinated by Serbian terrorists, Austria blamed Russia, as Russia had always promised to protect Serbia should Austria look to seize it. Following this outbreak, Germany and Italy declared war on Russia's ally France, whereupon Britain was inevitably thrown into the fray.

Rememberance Day parades are held every year in every town in most of Europe (not sure about the U.S?) to remember the veterans who fought in it. Hundreds of local military personnel attend the parade and there is a Church service with the famous words being read (usually by a veteran):

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
My great grandad fought and died at the Somme in the Great War.

What the Russians call a World War. Understandably so, because World War I and World War II were full-scale, destructive conflicts that involved all of humanity.
"World War I was called The Great War, and World War II was called The Great Patriotic War."

The greatest war... caused by Master Roshi's favorite thot who, planned to sacrifice herself In order to destroy Roshi's Coochie Empire and overthrow him from being King of the Coochie.

Story told by Roshi DevilArtemis Universe

"There I was back to back with Jesus. Bible in my right hand machine gun in the left. Ready to bless these unholy thots with the divine sauce. I ran out of ammo so I yelled across the orphanage Jesus I need a melee weapon. Never in my life have I seen a Mexican throw a sandal so fast in my life. 657 prostitutes fell that day to the holy sandal of Mexican Jesus. That day went down in history as The Great Coochie wars"

Also known as the Furry war, The Great Furry war of 2018, and in some cases World War III, The Furry war is and ongoing battle for superiority involving gamers and furries. Some groups have managed to make alliances with natives, such as the weaboos, the memers, and in rare cases, furries have gone as far as to capture rare and violent T-Posing children to set off on rivals. It is currently unclear as to which side will win the war. Some say it has to be the gamers, as the chief constantly respawns. Others say furries, as their numbers are always growing, and, as stated before, they’ve begun the taming and possible selective breeding of T-Posers. The war has also lead to a decline in bread, as the property are making sandwiches to supply the troops at an alarming rate.
“Man, I could really go for a sandwich right now.”

“Yeah, this war is really using up all the energy of us and our fellow gamer bois.”

“Exactly, but there’s just no telling when the Great Furry War will come to an end.”
