The american Civil War is considered one of the Worst! Other terrible Civil Wars were the English Civil War and the Spanish Civil War. Probably the worst Civil Wars were those in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Vietnam. The Vietnam War is often not considered with other civil wars, due to the extensive involvement of external parties. The Vietnam War consumes around 5 million dead, more than half of them civilians. The Cambodian Civil War, and the aftermath of the Cambodian Genocide saw the death of around 2.6 million people, around 20% of the entire population. The Rwanda Civil War took about 800,000 lives, and also represented about 20% of the entire population. By comparison, the united states of the Civil War took 600,000 lives out of a population of around 31 million dollars, or around 2%. That is very, very bad, but in many respects it does not compare with the horrors of the others mentioned here. .
