Was it a valid war? Was it a waste of life?

Was the war about three cousins, Tsar, Kaiser, George, who played as kids at grannies house in Denmark, one of them taunted by the others for his shrivelled arm (caused by an English doctor), or was it just continues Prussian aggression and expansionism, war with Austria, Saxony, Hesse, Bavaria, France. The forced unification of Germany, and then war with France again.


If it was the first, the war was a waste of life, if the second, then not taking apart Germany, isolating Prussia, and destroying its power when the allies won in 1918, was also a waste of life, because they came back again, 20 years later, as many of the allied military knew they would.
