List of conflicts in Europe


List of conflicts in Europe

This is a list of conflicts in Europe ordered chronologically, including wars between European nations, civil wars within European nations, wars between a European nation and a non-European nation that took place within Europe and global conflicts, in which Europe was a theatre of war.

Note, there are various definitions of Europe and in particular there is significant dispute about the eastern and south-eastern boundaries, specifically about how to treat the countries of the former Soviet Union and break-away nations of the Russian Federation. This list is based on a wide definition that includes much of the interface between Europe and South-West Asia.
