The human cost of WWII

3 posts in this topic

Figured this might be an interested audience, I know we have a lot of military history buffs here.

 

Just saw this today.  This 18 minute video shows, with graphical elements the deaths (military and civilian) of WW2.   It's really quite staggering.

Stunning.  One would hope these impacts on human life and tragedy are kept in memory as world leaders wrestle over potential tinderboxes such as the Ukraine, South China Sea, Syria, Iraq and on and on and on...

 

Given the recent conflict in eastern Ukraine, the statistics around Russian casualties is particularly resounding and foreboding as Putin talks about how the ability of Russians and their leaders to withstand hardship and suffering is in their DNA and contributes to what makes them a great nation who will always "defend" their interests.
