Good idea but you should add more type-ins, I gave up after "crimean", "russiaukraine", "korean" and "world war i" didn't work.

Good idea, but this quiz still does not accept most of answers

"Russian Invastion of Ukraine 1" - please accept at least Donbas and War in Donbas (also it was 2014-2015)

WWI and WWII - common abbreviations not accepted.

Iraq not accepted.

"Afghanistan war" not accepted. "US Afghan war" also not accepted.

Also the is a few really obscure and minor conflicts (Cyprus, Brunei, Aden Emergency...), while a lot of really huge wars with multiple state actors are missing... to put a few of the largest:

- Biafra

- Iran-Iraq war

- First and Second Congo wars

- Libyan-Chadian war

- Soviet Afghan war

- Mozambique (77-92)

- Angola (75-02)

- First and second Chechen war

- Second Indo-Pakistani war

- Bangladesh war of independence / Third Indo-Pakistani war

- Algerian war of independence

- Algerian civil war

- Sri Lankan civil war

- Lebanese civil war (75-90)

- Eritrean war of independence

Also it might be a good hint, if you put column for the number of casualties.

Regardless, a good concept. I did not get many myself, but a good quiz!
