After UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne Armenia was independent for a brief period once they defeated Turkey in the [[LastStand Battle of Sadarapat]] (with its borders drawn by none other than UsefulNotes/WoodrowWilson...though it must be said he only wanted to help the Armenians [[ValuesDissonance because they were Christian]]). In that battle, Turkey attempted to finish the Armenian nation off once and for all (and possibly complete the Armenian Genocide) by moving into the city of Yerevan, but were thankfully defeated by an army of practically any Armenian that could carry a gun, and forced to retreat after decisive defeats in the cities of Karakilisa and Abaran as well. But after being weakened by repeated massacres, disease and famine, and years of nonstop wars with Turkey, Georgia and Azerbaijan, the country was finally conquered and divided between Turkey and the newly-formed Soviet Union (who secretly supplied the Turkish with money and weaponry to gain their help in taking over Armenia), where it was given the boundaries it holds today. Not everyone took this lying down though, and general Garegin Njhdeh led an armed resistance against the Soviets in 1921, even managing to capture the capital of Yerevan for 42 days until they were pushed south. The southern regions of Armenia would declare independence, though the Republic of Mountainous Armenia was short-lived. Upon being overwhelmed by the Red Army, they negotiated a truce that included the southern province of Syunik being included in the Armenian SSR; an important provision which gave modern Armenia a border with Iran and prevented Turkey and Azerbaijan from surrounding Armenia on three sides.

Thousands of Armenians would fight on the Soviet side in the UsefulNotes/GreatPatrioticWar years later, with many of its citizens being drafted (see also UsefulNotes/RedsWithRockets since Armenia was a part of the Soviet Union at the time).

After the fall of the Bagratuni kingdom, a mass exodus of Armenians settled in the region of Cilicia, north of Cyprus on the Mediterranean coast where the wars between the Arabs and Byzantines had left the land depopulated, and established a kingdom there from 1199 to 1375. Later on the Cilcian Armenians became key players in TheCrusades, of course on the side of the Christian European crusaders. The Armenian Kingdom of Cilicia joined European forces in invading the Holy Land during this time. This earned them an ArchEnemy in the form of the Mamluks, an Islamic people who'd dominated Egypt. By the time Ghengis Khan and the Mongols started making their rounds into Europe and the Middle East, leaving devastation in their wake, Cilicia played it smart and King Hetum I sent a representative all the way to Mongolia to negotiate an alliance. The Mongols agreed, and together they attacked the Mamluks. Sadly, they were both defeated, and this not only ended the Mongol expansion into the Middle East but things would spiral downward for Cilicia in the ensuing decades as well. Not only did Cilicia lose the protection of the Mongols, but it's kings converted to Catholicism and attempted to force the populace to convert, which did not go over well; on two separate occasions, peasant uprisings got far enough out of hand to result in a king's assassination. In it's weakness, the Mamluks took advantage and finally conquered Cilicia in 1375. And shortly thereafter, the Ottoman Turks would take Cilicia from the Mamluks, though a substantial Armenian population would remain there until 1915.

Armenia today has a very effective and modernized military, consisting of an army and an air force (though, being located where it is, no navy), and receives aid from Russia and [[ThisIsHellas Greece]] among other allies. Males of age 19 are conscripted into the military for two years, though females can serve in the military as well. Armenia continues to build up it's army due to constant threat from Azerbaijan, but it's overall approach since the ceasefire has been a peaceful one, akin to Roosevelt's "speak softly and carry a big stick" philosophy. Recently Russia has increased its military presence in Armenia, signing an agreement which stipulated that Russian troops will be stationed there until at least 2044. They also stipulated that they would remain neutral if Azerbaijan started another war with Armenia over Nagorno-Karabakh, but they would still provide military equipment to Armenia. However, Armenia is a member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization, an alliance of Central Asian countries (including Russia) that protect one another if they are attacked, so if Armenia were to be directly attacked by Azerbaijan it could count on their support. However, Nagorno-Karabakh, being a non-member and an unrecognized country, is not a part of that agreement. One can hope that cooler heads will prevail.

When the Soviet Union [[TheGreatPoliticsMessUp collapsed]] and Armenia finally regained its independence, Armenia went to war with Azerbaijan over the Armenian-populated enclave of UsefulNotes/{{Nagorno-Karabakh}} (itself given to the Azerbaijani SSR by Stalin when dividing up the Caucasian SSR into the borders that Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan hold today), whose citizens had chosen to secede from Azerbaijan and declare independence. This war was essentially a continuation of the post-WWI battles Armenia and Azerbaijan had fought prior to being absorbed by the USSR, which did nothing but put the conflict on pause, in a sense. There were massacres on both sides of the conflict, sadly, and the war became fueled by GrayAndGreyMorality as it spiraled out of control. Russia and Turkey avoided becoming directly involved for fear of sparking a much larger Christian-Muslim conflict, though Turkey's sympathies remained towards Azerbaijan, and Russia provided Armenia with weapons under-the-table. Armenia earned several victories, of note being the capture of Shushi, when a cease-fire was declared in 1994, leaving the two countries in a very uneasy truce, with Armenian troops still occupying the unrecognized Republic of Nagorno-Karabakh (or Artsakh) to this day. The frozen conflict could boil over into another war at any given time. And with Azerbaijan becoming increasingly impatient and violating the cease-fire, war could indeed be on the horizon, if the Azeris have their way. There have been peace talks mediated by Russia, but since neither side wants to concede anything (not to mention the conspicuous absence of any representative from Artsakh at these meetings), the talks have so far gone nowhere.
