War of Triple Alliance
Paraguay declared war on Argentina after Argentina refused to allow the passage of Paraguan troops across its soil. The war was joined by Brazil and Uruguay. The war continued for 5 years and despite desperate Paraguan resistance, it was conquered. Nearly the complete Paraguayan population was killed, with only 20,000 men and 200,000 woman surviving.
