This is currently a test page/placeholder for ideas. was originally a Levantine Urceo-Hekuvian war but also blew up later to include the Great Cronan War. we can play with the involvement of the other powers/alliances later. Figure the first phase, the war in Levantia over the dissolution of the HLE, was settled by 1935 with Urceo-Burgundie winning the war (but the Empire dissolving anyway) and the groundwork laid for a Urcea/Burg-lead Levantine Union later. A phony war with minor offensives on Uijukin and the mainland followed by another war in 1938 escalating by 1940 over something else (primarily Insui-Caphirian war leading to the formation of the Western Coalition for self-defense); this is still going on when the Cronan war begins. Burg sits out phase 2.

Involving over 100 million people from 9 countries and resulting in over 64 million deaths, it saw the mass mobilization of the industrial capabilities of participating nations into a state of total and complete war. It is marked by massive strategic bombing campaigns of industrial and civilian centers, trench and mechanized warfare, and the first and only nuclear bombing of one nation by another in an act of war. It remains the deadliest conflict in human history.

Levantine Civil War

1927-1935 (includes Landder Straights and eastward bodies of water, Levantine continent, and Ixnayan continent) the war in Levantia over the dissolution of the HLE, was settled by 1935 with Urceo-Burgundie winning the war (but the Empire dissolving anyway)

Ixnayan Theater

A phony war with minor offensives on Uijukin and the mainland followed by another war in 1938 escalating by 1940 over something else (primarily Insui-Caphirian war leading to the formation of the Western Coalition for self-defense)

Crona Theater

Action in the Crona theater began in 1948 and lasted to 1953 between the forces of the Western Coalition and those of the Auxilium Alliance.

The war began when the forces of Horholme invaded and occupied the territories of Vachenan Horholme that were territories controlled by the nation of Vachena after the Kiro-Burgundian Wars. This invasion prompted a Vachenan response backed by Heku to retake these territories. With Heku's involvement, Burgundie enforced its policy of Commonwealth, Common Defense, supporting Horholme with the assistance of its ally Pauldustllah. The resulting mobilization spiral unraveled a web of alliances that eventually led to the participation of most of the world's Great Powers.
