The Second Argic War, also known as the Y War and the Z War, was a global war that lasted from 1968 to 1974, although related conflicts began earlier and were, in some places, resolved later. It involved the vast majority of Argic nations — including all the great powers — eventually forming two opposing military alliances: the As and the Bs. It was the most widespread war in history, and directly involved more than xxx million people from over xx countries. In a state of "total war", the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, erasing the distinction between civilian and military resources. Marked by mass deaths of civilians and the strategic bombing of industrial and population centres (in which approximately x million were killed) and including, at its close, the use of atomic weapons, it resulted in an estimated xx million to xx million fatalities. These made the war the deadliest conflict in human history.

Most historians believe that the Second Argic War occurred as a result of the First Argic War, which in many ways set the stage for the ongoing tensions that surmounted into the Second War.
