Population increases before wars.
I don't remember where I heard it, but before major wars start (around 20 years), birth rates go up, and more males are born.
Now, I don't know if it is true or not, but it is something that could be looked into I suppose. I would suspect that it is semi-true, reason being the sub-concious picks up on hostilities LONG before the concious mind sees it happening.
Also, you could just look into who is buying massive amounts of boots.....gotta have boots in a war.
