Distinguishing between crisis wars and mid-cycle wars is crucial to the theory underlying Generational Dynamics. This list of criteria is given in chapter 4 (page [localization2#84]) and illustrated by detailed examples in chapters 4 and 5.
The following list summarizes all the generational timelines described in this book, focusing on the crisis periods. In some cases, dates can't be identified with absolute precision, but this is not important to Generational Dynamics, as long as the crisis period is identified to within a few years. In some cases, the dates given below identify only the crisis war; in other cases, the dates include the preceding financial crisis period. This represents an annoying lack of precision that can be corrected with more detailed study of the historical period in question, but is not crucial to the success of Generational Dynamics.
