The Fallen of WWII

The Fallen of World War II - Data-driven documentary about war & peace

The 15-minute video (its well worth the time to watch), titled , is divided into three sections. The first is an analysis of soldier fatalities by nation, while the second tackles civilian deaths (including the Holocaust). The final section provides a fascinating and illuminating overarching perspective of WWII in the context of previous conflicts and those that followed.

@ video 14:25 the post-war summary if you will, is interesting in discussing the "Long Peace" and how major economic powers have not fought each other. (At least not directly. )


Interesting coincidence: This month marks the 70th Anniversary of the end of the last battle of WWII. William Manchester wrote his thoughts of Okinawa 25 years ago. I wonder if he would still feel the same about war today? Good read.
