Visualizing World War II Casualties (Military and Civilian): A Must Watch Video

This video visually explores the numbers of casualties by nation. I’ve seen the numbers before, but this doesn’t have the same impact as seeing them presented visually in this video. It really brings home the vast differences in casualties by nation. Note the differences suffered by the U.S. in comparison to the Soviet Union.

While no one agrees on the exact number of deaths, the relative number of deaths shown in this video are comparable to credible estimates.
