This chapter seeks to lay the foundation of future war finance studies through a series of descriptive statistics using a novel data set. The data set encompasses all interstate war principal belligerents in wars over six-months long from 1823 to 2003. Principal belligerents are those states considered major decision makers in the war, those whose contributions to the fighting force (i.e., number of troops) are sufficient to make them independent decision makers about the course of the war. The data presented seek to commence the debate on several war finance questions, which can then be used to explore the effect of war finance on prominent topics in political science.

Keywords:   war finance, war finance studies, war finance questions, political science, war finance policies, war costs, war finance statistics
