Answer
Sorry I do not have that date either. However what is clear and evident is that days of peace with no armed conflict going on anywhere in the world are short, few and far between. So few in fact that you can really argue that they are irrelevant. When I studied military history one of my university professors (in the Royal Swedish Defence Academy) actually argued that all known human societies were primarily organized for the conduct of war and defence. So that is really a very basic function!
