Well, you get the picture.
Also maybe accept Arab Caliphate for Islamic Caliphate. Or, heck, why not Saudi Arabia.
The Franks are with France because I don't think many people would guess the Franks. I would do the same for Rome but i think most people would be angry with the fact that i included Rome with Italy as their are major differences. This does go the same for the Franks, but yet again, most people don't know the difference between the two.
Really, the South in the U.S. Civil War won at least 2 times more battles in 4 years than the powerful empires of Thailand (Siam) or Burma in a couple thousand years of existence? They don't even make the list by English speaking war nuts?
Once again, Wikipedia is a junk source and this is a subject that really is totally uncountable.
However, the one choice that I find unacceptable is counting the Confederate States as a country. They should definitely not be included here, since they were never recognized by any other country.
Many things could be said about how to define a "battle" or a "country" so any classification would and will be debateable but i think your effort was excellent.
It would be nice, since you have already got the DataBase, a quiz about a fought/won or a fought/loss ratio by country
That does seem a strange differentiation to make.
Great quiz though btw
Seems very Eurocentric. Incas ruled from Colombia to argentina - they won plenty of battles?
I am not at all surprised that Poland made the list, but am surprised that Lithuania didn't - did you choose Poland to represent the Commonwealth as opposed to Lietuva?
I wonder also about Assyria - that lot that came doen like a wolf on the fold etc. However I suppose the issue is documentation.
Afghanistan? Given that for some 300 years no other country has conducted a successful invasion - however guerillas dont fight battles.
Macedonia? Please don't subsume them in Greeks. It would cause all sorts of geopolitical angst!
So yes - a good quiz. it must be it creates so many questions
Wars fought: 1
Wars won: 1
Winning quota: 100%
It so funny.
Confederate States won more battles then Byzantine Empire, Arabic Caliphate, Portugal and Persia! All these countries were world powers during many years.
Even you count every shootout with the Indians on Wild West...
"Countries that Have Lost the Most Battles"
There are Turkic because Mughals are continue of Timurids and Timurids are Turkic
