A very impressive animation about the human history of wars… This animation shows all important battles that took place over the last ten centuries. The sizes of the explosions and labels are proportional to the number of casualties. The music is “Ride Of The Valkyries” by Richard Wagner ( in my opinion, rather a bad choice here, sounds too optimistic). The data come from the wikipedia article, List of Battles.
One general once said that if people who start wars would know what a war really is, they would never do it.
And my husband says a war is just another form of kannibalism.
