There can be no definite answer to this question, given that when speaking of war we can speak of international wars, intra-national wars. Also there is often contention over what constitutes a war.

However, estimates suggest that for 362 days of the year, there is a conflict going on somewhere in the world. This excludes internal (or civil) wars. Estimates also suggest that there have only been 250 years of peace in over 3400 years of documented history. (Some people suggest there have only been 26 days of peace).

There are currently over 40 wars ongoing, in which over 1000 people die per year (those which result in fewer deaths are excluded from UN statistics), occurring world wide. There have been hundreds since the end of the Second World War.

I think it would be very hard to answer this question because there are so many wars going on even as we speak. You would have to determine if tribal wars counted, if civial wars counted, etc... I know there are always civil wars raging in Africa. So good luck with ever finding this out

There are over 3,000 wars if you count the documented ones

More than can be counted and not everyone is in agreement whether it was a battle, War, or so other term even in recent history. For instance in the USA some people say that only Congress can declare a War and everything else is a military action and not an actual War.

I think haves been 36 wars in the whole world but im not sure. If anybody else haves any more informant please send me a messages on here. The best way to find how many wars there haves been look in a big history book because that tells you all the history you need to know. The only reason why we went to war is because we kept being in bomb where we looked or we went to there were bombs all over the places. My classmates and me are doing how the wars have started and why they got started.
