The European War was a conflict that lasted from July 1st 1905, to January 7th, 1906, and was fought between the Triple Alliance, consisting of German Empire, Austria-Hungary, Italy, and Morocco, and the Entente Powers, consisting of Britain, France, Russia, and Spain. The key cause of the conflict was the Moroccan Crisis, when Kaiser Wilhelm II had announced his support for Moroccan independence from France.

The war was one of the bloodiest in history, and was one of the most widespread as well. Fighting was not just limited to Europe, but also to the African colonies of the European powers. The Middle East also saw fighting between the Ottoman Empire and Arab states who had allied with the Triple Alliance so as to drive them out of the Arabian Peninsula.

The conflict is seen as marking the beginning of Germany's rise as a colonial power. With their key rivals defeated, the German Empire's colonial expansion was assured, and they spread throughout Africa and Asia. However, this expansion brought the German Empire into a state of near-hostile tensions with the United States of America, resulting in the "Quasi War".
