The War in The book of Eli was an event that occured 30 years prior to the current day events in the movie. A poster when Eli is in the hotel room and Sacara's mother walks in to give him treats says or shows 2024 supposing that the War happened in the year 2024 also making the present events be in 2054/2055. Eli also states that the war might have happened because of these books )the book is the bible and it's the last one left)

The war in this case must happened because of religous beliefs meaning the aethiests any other religion declared a war on the Christians. After the war Eli states that the war tore a hole in the sky that burnt everything
