This is an extremely interesting and informative look at the deaths of World War II (both military and civilian), how they were distributed and how they compare to other conflicts.

I've been learning a lot more about World War II history lately out of interest from movies and television than I did at school (since I didn't take any history subjects) and it's both fascinating and horrific. Let's hope the Great Peace continues.
I went to the Australian War Memorial in Canberra in 2013 on a road trip with a friend of mine. He looked up the wall to find a relative of his who served in world war 2 but he couldn't find him. It turned out his relative wasn't there because he survived the war, the wall only mentions Australian's who died. To someone who hasn't done much research on war the number of deaths were so mind blowing its hard to comprehend, let alone to understand 80 million.
