Top 10 War happened in 20th Century

Boxer Rebellion

Boxer Rebellion

In 1898,  Members of the secret society practised boxing and callisthenic rituals which they believed would make them impervious to bullets.

At first, the Boxers wanted to destroy the Changing dynasty and wanted to rid China of all foreign influence.

When the Empress Dowager backed the Boxers, the Boxers turned solely to ridding China of foreigners.

On June 18, 1900, the Empress Dowager ordered all foreigners to be killed. Several foreign ministers and their families were killed before the international force could protect them

The Russo-Japanese War

The Russo-Japanese War

War held great international significance, as it was the first all-out war of the modern era in which a non-European power defeated one of Europe’s great powers.

Popular outrage in Russia at the outcome helped lead to the Russian Revolution of 1905, a wave of unrest that lasted more than two years but did not manage to topple the tsar’s government.

A drastic change was obviously necessary for Mexico to catch up with other nations, which were developing industrially and socially.

Because of this, some historians feel that the Mexican Revolution was necessary “growing pains” for the backward nation. This is true to an extent, but this view tends to gloss over the sheer destruction wrought by ten years of war and mayhem.

Mexican war

Mexican war

Mexico is a nation with tremendous resources, including oil, minerals, agriculture and hard-working people, and its recovery from the revolution was bound to be relatively speedy. The biggest obstacle to recovery was corruption, and the 1934 election of the honest Lazaro Cardenas gave the nation a chance to get back on its feet. Today, there are few scars left from the revolution itself.

The lasting effects of the revolution have all been cultural.

Since the end of the war, the Vietnam War has become a benchmark for what not to do in all future U.S. foreign conflicts.
