    World War 2 engulfed a lot more countries than those actively involved as combatants, it also saw the systematic bombing of cities and towns, islands etc

    A "World War" engulfs a lot more than just battlefields.

    im surprised that page still has the lushan rebellion up there. its not as crazy as it looks; its going by population according to imperial census before and after the war, but after the war china was so fragmented the imperial bureaucracy wasnt very functional at far ranges so the census wasnt well administered.

    The World War caused large sections of the Earth to be rebuilt and devastated the infrastructure of the entire East of Europe because of bubbling political causes. It's called a 'world war' because everybody in the world, despite not being direct belligerents, were encouraged to participate.
