Notes: This is a Declaration of War chart, tracking the date of declaration and the alliances involved. Where an alliance has peaced out, the alliance's icon is vertically-shaded with white, the icon border colour gives the date of peace, and the DoW attack lines are dashed. Alliances which have declared for 'both' sides are horizontally-shaded, with their central colour based on their earliest declaration. 'Micro' alliances are not included, with that definition being subjective, and usually based on the total number of nations in the alliance. The grey alliances are currently bystanders. Design priority in this chart has been to minimize x-overs to enhance 'reading' clarity.
