• The total number of deaths, including civilians is in the region of 61 million people - an amazingly high number:
  • I am not sure but it's a lot less than in WWI. A lot of people think that WWII was worse, with the Nazis and concentration camps, but WWI saw more people dying in the trenches. Sorry for not answering your question though.
  • I've never seen numbers that agree with Voodoo's answer, unless you might count influenza deaths which aren't a direct result of battles. I think WW2 was worse militarily, and much worse in terms of civilian deaths.
  • I Couldn't give you an exact figure but I would estimate 35 million world wide. Some 20 million in russians, 6 million in jews, 4 million germans, 3 million japanese, a quarter million americans, and the remainder being comprised of various nationalities.
  • Military deaths were approximately 22 million people with the USSR having the highest count, in the range of 13 to 14 million. Germany and China are the next two highet. Civilian deaths, which include the Jews as well as Gypsies etc are in the range of 30 million people with the Chinese leading the pack at about 10 million. The USSR, Poland, Germany and Yugoslavia are the next highest (in order). Some countries do not seperate the numbers, which includes about 4 million, including Japan, Hungary, Greece, Czechoslovakia and some smaller countries. All in all, between the USSR, China, Germany, Poland, Japan and Ygoslavia we are talking about 50 million people. The estimate for American dead is about .5 million and for Canada it was about 39,000 of which all were considered military deaths.
  • Estimates for the total casualties of the war vary, but most suggest that some 60 million people died in the war, including about 20 million soldiers and 40 million civilians. Many civilians died because of disease, starvation, massacres, genocide. The Soviet Union lost around 27 million people during the war, about half of all World War II casualties. Of the total deaths in World War II, approximately 85 percent were on the Allied side (mostly Soviet and Chinese) and 15 percent on the Axis side. One estimate is that 12 million civilians died in Nazi concentration camps, 1.5 million by bombs, 7 million in Europe from other causes, and 7.5 million in China from other causes. Figures on the amount of total casualties vary to a wide extent because the majority of deaths were not documented
  • 72 million, two thirds of which were civilian casualties. (Figure includes the 12 million dead in the Holocaust.)
  • It's the most bloodiest war in history with around 50 million dead. It also broke many records like the record of killing the most people and second most people in one attack i.e The nuclear bombing of Japan by America killed over 100,000 in about one hour and around twice that over the next two years.
