  Notes:
  1. The above table shows only deaths not wounded.
  2. Figures are rounded to nearest 1000
  3. The table above has been compiled from three main sources:- 

(1). Alan Bullock - Hitler and Stalin: Parallel Lives pp987 
(2). The Times Atlas of the Second World War pp204,205 
(3). Richard Overy - Russia's War pp288 
The highest estimate for each country was selected during compilation - in the case of ref.3 the figures for military deaths are given as recent official figures and the civilian deaths are those estimated from a 1996 study by B V Sokolov - although the author points out that an accurate figure is difficult to calculate.

Also: for Australia

  *The figures for these countries were very different in the three sources 

** The military deaths for Spain, a neutral country during the war, are attributed to volunteers in the Axis (4500) and Allied (7500) armies. According to source 2, above, 10,000 Spaniards died in concentration camps. These figures may be very inaccurate and may be reviewed later. 

*** This table does not take into account the 3 million Indians who died due to famine in 1943.
