z-942.png

The number of World War I casualties, both military and civilian, was about 40 million — more than 19 million deaths and 21 million wounded. This includes 9.7 million military deaths and about 9.0 million civilian deaths. The Entente Powers (also known as the Allies) lost more than 5 million soldiers and the Central Powers about 4 million. Casualty numbers are a topic of debate due to the fact that military casualty statistics include combat related deaths as well as losses caused by accidents, disease and prisoner of war deaths. for more click here
