Memorial Day, Remembering The Fallen, Part 2




Regardless of the fact, if U.S. decision to go to war was right or wrong, world war two was the most sorry event in human history. Unfortunately the death and other toll due to World War Two is usually reported like number. We need to understand that when we say sixty million, we mean sixty million human beings, just like you me. They were living and breathing people with families, neighbors and friends, co-workers. Most experts believe, if there will be a Third World War, it is going to be far more deadlier and destructive, since, the weapons of mass destruction are now lot more destructive and widely spread and held. Sixty million people were killed. An estimated 3.17 to 4.00% of world population died in war or as a consequence of war. U.S. casualties were 418,500. Death toll was as high as 16.7% of Poland’s population. Total deaths in Third Reich were as high as 8.0 to 10.5%. The death rate of Soviet citizens in German military was as high as 27.0%. U.S.S.R. lost about 13.5% and Belarus lost 25.3% of it’s population. There were 11 to 17 million people, who died due to systematic murders done by Nazis, 6 million of them were Jews (Holocaust). 4.5 to 8.2 million Russian civilians were the victims of Nazi killings. 2.7 to 3 million Jews were killed only in Poland. Roma deaths were between 130,565 to 285,650, with 26,000 to 90,000, only in Yugoslavia.

The historian Chalmers Johnson has written that “the Japanese slaughtered as many as 30 million Filipinos, Malays, Vietnamese, Cambodians, Indonesians and Burmese, at least 23 million of them ethnic Chinese.  There were 14,657 deaths among the total 130,895 western civilians interned by the Japanese due to famine and disease.

The deaths of 400,000 civilians deported during the Soviet annexations in 1939–40 are included with World War II casualties.
Russian sources list Axis Prisoner of war deaths of 580,589 in Soviet captivity. However some western scholars estimate the total at between 1.7 and 2.3 million.

American corpses sprawled on the beach of Tarawa. The Marines secured the island after 76 hours of intense fighting with around 6,000 dead in total from both sides together. The Pacific war claimed the lives of more than 100,000 US military personnel (Source: Wikipedia).

Wikipedia article, World War II casualties, also reports that “Civilians killed totaled from 40 to 52 million, including 13 to 20 million from war-related disease and famine. Total military dead: from 22 to 25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 5 million prisoners of war.”

This leaves 1,103,000 POW dead. However, western historians put the number of POW held by the Germans at 5.7 million and about 3 million as dead in captivity (in the official Russian figures 1.1 million are military POW and remaining balance of about 2 million are included with civilian war dead).

In short war is “the dirtiest” game. Once started, nobody knows who will survive and who will be the victim. You may be directly involved or totally unrelated, doesn’t matter. You may be a military personal or a civilian, makes no difference, in practical sense. You may be killed just because who you are or how you look like. Hence, the original question is still unanswered. Did we have to get involved in all of this? Isn’t it amazing that almost seventy years later, we are still looking for the answers to very basic questions.
