The invasions of the Huns and Mongols into 19 Jan Nederveen Pieterse Europe and the siege of Vienna by the Ottoman Turks were experienced as major threats, but if we compare the casualties of these conflicts with those of the Thirty Years War in Germany, they pale into insignificance. Even in later times of imperialism and colonialism, for all the talk of others - racism, Orientalism, the White Man's Burden, and so forth - the main conflicts took place within Europe. The major wars - the Napoleonic wars, the Franco-German war, the two world wars - were largely European wars.
