Inspired by a conversation in the "Confessional Thread". My favorite war is the Vietnam War. It had good music, an interesting landscape, helicopters really came into their own, and it spawned some of the best war movies in history.

World War I because it best encompasses the futility of existence.

WW2, for the sheer epicness of the entire war, closely followed by the Civil War due to its significance. Im sad that there was no poll option for the Buildabears v. American freedoms.

Civil war. On US soil and death came quick and easy from now easy-fix wounds. You had to come to terms that your death was guaranteed one way or the other going into it. 600 soldiers dying per day when our population 1/10 it's current size. And you still had the chance to kill your enemy with a bayonet, stabbing him through the throat.

Civil War, followed closely by the Revolution and the Eastern theater of WW2. But the people, campaigns and tactics of the Civil War just fascinate me.

Here's what I typed in Confessional

A couple of years back I was thinking about what the most fucked up war to fight in would be, and for some reason imagining being in the Civil War freaked me out the most.

But what I think makes the Civil War so eerie to me is just how beautiful it was. I mean I know the Revolutionary War was fought in the same nation, but I can't think of a war that makes me think of death amidst lush green fields more than the Civil War.

Not really a war, but special forces operations that are performed every day but never reported on. Other than that, WWII and Vietnam are tied.

WWII, It had so much, epic battles, D-day, Naval battles including subs, dog fights, tank battles, surprise attacks on our soil, some of the greatest leaps in invention, covert operations, human experimentation and lastly nukes were used.

American history is full of weirdness that nobody talks about anymore. Grenada and Panama happened when I was a kid, but nobody remembers them.

Other ones lost to history was the pseudo war with France during John Adams presidency in which France demanded bribe money in order to have diplomatic contacts with America, the time we almost went to war with Germany over Central American debt during T.R.'s presidency, there was like 20+ American invasions of Central American countries from 1900 to 1940.

Panama Invasion. I was there. I learned two things, don't fuck with those little white headed monkeys. Those little cocksuckers can bite, HARD. And Noriega's military can't shoot for shit. The fuckers would spray and pray then run like rabbits after you took a couple of them out.
