World War Next - By the Numbers


Predicting the Next Great Global Conflict

In 2024, the globe continues its march towards the Next Great Global Conflict as more and more national powers are brought under the umbrella of Total War. The ongoing conflicts in Ukraine and Israel/Gaza - with the standing threat of a Chinese invasion of neighboring Taiwan - only fan the flames of instability. Couple this with political and cultural divisions popping up in the West and elsewhere and the powder keg of the next World War is ready to become alight once more, some 80 years since the close of the last conflict which left Europe, North Africa, and the Asia-Pacific region in ruins.
