What other war is similar to WWI?

One of the most striking elements of World War I was the fact that nearly every nation in the world had some stake in it.  For example, while nations in Europe did do battle, their colonies were inexorably pulled into the conflict.  When America entered the war, it enhanced the idea that the war was something to be fought on the world stage.  This is present in the Second World War, when nations around the world were plunged in the conflict in much of the same way as the First World War.  The global and protracted nature of both, the sweeping change caused to the continent, as well as the shadows of misery both wars cast on the world consciousness make them similar to one another.
