If you love history, especially the study of human conflict you should watch this. It’s an animated world map of conflict over the last 1000years in 5min, with a great score playing. It provides some spectacular insight into the reality of war as a constant. It is by no means a complete or totally accurate depiction of war over the last millennium, however it still provides a good indication of the locality of the war, intensity and duration. One of my favourite periods is during the Napoleonic Wars (The Seven Coalitions 1792- 1815).

Watch this is full size

I like the words displayed at the end of the animation.....so true.
