Global Firepower: Military Strength Rankings
If history has shown the observer one thing, it is that war is a part of life. Strange as that may sound, documented records report only 300 years of known peace on our planet, leaving the rest to wallow in the path of war. What that statistic tells us is that there has been some source of conflict – be it religious, territorial or otherwise – between two or more parties on our planet for thousands of years. GlobalFirepower (GFP) provides a unique analytical display of information based on sources from all over the globe. Our information is broken down into five major categories shown below. More countries will be added to the site as information becomes available.
