The Great Adonian War, commonly referred to as the GAW, was an international military conflict that lasted from 1947 to 1952, dividing many of Adonia's nations into two opposing alliances: the Allies and the Imperials. It was the most widespread war in Adonian history with more than 70 million military personnel mobilized and the economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities of the major participants dedicated to the effort. As a state of total war, the distinction between civilian and military resources was virtually erased, becoming the deadliest of all conflicts with over 40 million military and civilian casualties.

This war was mainly the result of two major alliances: the Allies and the Imperial Alliance. The Allies consisted of Abbasid, BB, DD and EE, and the empires they controlled as a major colonial powers. On the other hand, the Imperial Alliance consisted of the CC, FF, the GG and the Sanese Empire.
