Deaths in War January 7, 2007

Posted by Sharath Rao in America, politics.

Forget about the politics of it for a moment and take it just for a fact. This is quite astonishing – stuff I didnt know.

a) 618,000 Americans died in the American Civil War.

b) 118,000 Americans died in WW I. I thought they entered the war rather late, compared to say WW II where they lost 450,000 people.

Ofcourse, 118,000 is only slightly more than the 90,000 India lost fighting on the British side.
