In regards to the so called Naruto war. It isn't actually a war but rather a police action. You can't very well go to war against two people who don't even have the backing of a country can you? Leave it to shounen manga to redefine the definition of war.
Well it is better defined in ODA though 'War of the Best' thats what it was, and 2 of the 'best' WB and Ace perished.
Naruto the 3rd, 4th, 17h, who knows Great Ninja War. By body count it can be considered a war, but true no countries or territory is in the balance here, just an argument over allowing a jutsu to be performed basically, thats it.

"Why, Mr. Kyf? Why do you do it? Why get up? Why keep fighting? Do you believe you're fighting FOR something? For more than your Characters survival? Can you tell me what IT is? Do you even know? Is IT freedom? Or truth? Perhaps peace? Yes? No? Could it be for love? Illusions, Mr. Kyf. Vagaries of perception. The temporary constructs of a feeble human intellect trying desperately to justify a shinobi that is without meaning or purpose. And all of them as artificial as the Matrix itself, although only a human mind could invent something as insipid as love. You must be able to see it, Mr. Kyf. You must know it by now. You can't win. It's pointless to keep fighting. Why, Mr. Kyf? Why? Why do you persist?"
