The World War, also known as the Great War or the Global War, was a war that took place on most continents of the world from 1948 to 1952. The two main parts of the war were the European War against Germany and the Great Asian War against the Caliphate and India. The war began in 1948 when Borealia and Spain invaded India following a long period of hostility. France invaded Germany later the same year, and the wars were connected by nations who attacked both the Pact and Germany, such Brazil or Spain. The war in Germany ended with the capture of Berlin on 3 March 1951, but the war in India did not end until the nuclear destruction of Hyderabad (Scrawlando's Fury), Bangalore (Maximum Mundum), and Coimbatore (Checkmate) on 6, 7, and 8 August followed by the Indian declaration of surrender on 8 August. The war officially ended at the signing of the Treaty of Constantinople, which was sealed on 10 October. The war resulted in the most casualties ever caused by a war and saw unprecendented destruction and harm done to civilians and soldiers alike. It also saw the first use of nuclear weapons in warfare by Spain, Rome, and Borealia.
The war was called the World War, or sometimes the Global War, due to the fact that it encompassed most major nations and alliance in the world, and fighting took place on almost every continent. The name "Great War" is sometimes used due to the unprecedented scale and technological advancement of the war.
Tensions between Germany and France had been high after the Great European War of the 1910s. France had been remilitarizing the border and preparing to invade the Rhineland for quite some time. French President President's Name Here officially ordered the invasion of Germany on 9 April 1948, followed by the Netherlands on 12 April. Lombardy invaded southern Germany on 23 April, attempting to seize Venice.
In the east, India and Borealia had been in conflict over the Andaman Islands. Also, Rome and Arabia had poor relations after the Great European War. The Pact generally had negative feelings towards the western powers and vice versa. During the Dutch War of 1894, India invaded Dutch Aceh despite the fact that Spain was already invading the region. Spain was forced to concede the region to India after the Indian forces arrived in the provincial capital of Aceh before the Spanish. Tensions between Borealia and India erupted after the two nations issued sanctions against each other and Borealia officially declared war on 27 March, followed by Spain the next day. The Caliphate moved to defend India, resulting in war with Rome. Borealia also drew in the other major powers of Borealia and Hesperia, who also engaged in war with Germany.
