The European Civil War was a series of military conflicts between former member states of the European Commonwealth.
After the European Commonwealth-Middle East War came to an end in 2060 when the Middle East's oil fields dried up, there was no purpose in fighting anymore.[Non-game 1] The European Commonwealth quickly began to dissolve into quarreling nation states fighting over the last remaining resources on Earth.
- Fallout intro:"In the 21st century, war was still waged over the resources that could be acquired. Only this time, the spoils of war were also its weapons: Petroleum and Uranium. For these resources, China would invade Alaska, the US would annex Canada, and the European Commonwealth would dissolve into quarreling, bickering nation-states, bent on controlling the last remaining resources on Earth."
- Fallout Bible 0: "The Euro-Middle Eastern War ends as the oil fields in the Middle East run dry... there is no longer a goal in the conflict, and both sides are reduced almost to ruin."
