Hello!

Wow, very interesting discussion going on here.

To be honest, I don't think I could even answer this question. There are way too many factors and issues contributing to winning or losing a war. Also, we rarely ever get the real version of how something really happened in history; everything is filtered and manipulated.

Have a nice day :)

France

Again, another retard.

"According to British historian Niall Ferguson, France is the most successful military power in history. The French participated in 50 of the 125 major European wars that have been fought since 1495; more than any other European state."

No need to get rude I only voiced my own opinion. Also quoting one source is hardly gonna change that fact also that quote only states the fact they took part not actually won.
Especially recent history shows how bad France's military it it almost lost in ww1 did lose in ww2, lost in nam and lost in the fishing wars of Jersey They had a good run with Napoleon but that was it.
I suggest if your gonna get butt hurt just dont respond to people :)

How about doing some research into history before you start spouting false nonsense. And saying that they had a good run with Napoleon was it is the dumbest thing I have ever heard. And if you think France is bad at fighting wars i cant imagine what countries you think are good at it lol... France has been winning battles and has been a dominant military power since 486 A.D.

Saying they nearly lost WW1 is horse shit, they won end of story. They also won the 100 years war. And so many more battles and wars its hard to keep up. Sure they lost WW2, but so did almost every other nation in Europe. And If you take the US out of the equation Nazi Germany and the Japanese would of conquered the entire planet. Russia didn't stand a chance in a 1 front war with Germany. You are only looking at the last 100 years. France has been around for SOOO much longer and you and so many others keep forgetting that. Its ignorant and annoying to see people discuss history while ignoring FACTS. And I am sorry I may have responded rudely, but to state such inaccuracy's in a thread regarding history is in itself rude.

Not to mention there were no real winners in either of the world wars. It's literally the most gruesome war in world history. France is not the worst nation to fight wars, not even in the last 100 years if we're honest. When they got beaten by Germany, not many other nations had the technological advancements nor strategist the germans had. Place any nation at the start of world war 2 in France's position, and they'll probably get destroyed.

It occurs to me there may be a legitimate argument that the country worst at actual *fighting* wars since 1900 is Russia/USSR.

Defeated by Japan in 1905.

Crushed in WWI to the point the empire collapsed (started off getting absolutely annihilated at Battles of Tannenburg and Masurian Lakes)

Humiliated by Poland one on one in 1920.

Absolutely mauled by germany after their alliance broke in WW2 - only stemmed the tide with a river of blood and with thanks to winter, the Allies (supplies/equipment and opening up additional fronts) and Hitler's awful strategic directives.

Fought to a standstill with atrocious losses by Finland in the Winter War.

Decades of struggling to quell insurrections and border troubles with chechens and such

Driven out of afghanistan by mujahideen

Why?
lost to armenians once and almost lost once more
but... they just won?
2/3 of targets were destroyed by tb2s, azerbaijan "bought" 1 or 2 months ago before the war started.
