How many generals died in world war 1?
78 British and Dominion officers of the rank of Brigadier General and above died on active service in the First World War while a further 146 were wounded. These figures alone show that, contrary to popular belief, British Generals frequently went close enough to the battle zone to place themselves in considerable danger.

Estimates vary, but around 10 million (10,000,000) soldiers of all belligerents lost their lives in the First World War. (About another 9 million civilians died.) Several answers have been added for this question, but note that the question asks specifically about military deaths . (All fi…gures given here are necessarily approximate since record keeping in 1918 was not as precise as now.) . The Allies, including the Americans, reported about 5.5 million soldiers killed. The Central Powers reported about 4.5 million soldiers killed, for a total military death toll of about 10 million. . When wounded and missing are added in, military casualties of all types total something over 40 million. . I read somewhere that the death toll was around 22 million men. This figure is accurate enough for total deaths, military and civilian combined. . Over 50,000 American soldiers were killed in action in World War I. The total count climbed to a little over 100,000. (MORE)

In all, between BOTH sides,65 million men and women were called to service, more than half ofthem (37.5 million) either killed, wounded, captured, or missing inaction. . 'World War I' was a war in which many countries fought. Ithappened in different parts of the world. So it is called a "world"war. It lasted from 1914 to 1918.

The war started after Archduke Ferdinand of Austria was killedby members of a Serbian terrorist group. This happened in Sarajevo.However, there are more reasons that the war started. It is verycomplicated. . The countries of Europe were divided into two groups. They werelike groups of friends who promised to help each other if one wasattacked. If one country was attacked by an enemy country, theirfriend country had to join in the war between the two. Because ofthese agreements, suddenly almost all the countries in Europebecame part of the Great War. . There were two groups: the Allies and the Central Powers. Allieswere Russia, France, Britain and later Italy and the United States.The Central Powers were Austria, Germany, Ottoman Empire.

As a result of fighting or due to disease etc or just how manywomen died during 1914-1918? The Russians had some women battalions and it is thought between400-2000 died on the front line from both sides. The number raisesmore when you count civilian deaths from the war not directly to dowith fightin…g but from shelling. Some dressed as men to fight on the line, some were killed incivilian deaths and others whilst tending to the wounded, about 400US nurses died mostly of Spanish Flu. Many others had to work indangerous factories to quickly churn out the ammunition etc neededon the front line. During 1914-1918 in the US alone over 25,000 women a year died inchildbirth. (MORE)
Different countries often provide multiple sets of figures, in part because those who were wounded later die of their wounds and their status is then changed. Another variable is that provided for those listed as missing in action. Some will be located as prisoners, some will be confirmed as killed …in action, many will never be located. Some nations will no longer exist after a war and can't report their losses. Body bag counts were not important or reliable during WWI. Men were buried where they died. Trenches collapsed and were filled in. A total of 58,480 US Servicemen are listed as Killed, 189,955 as wounded and 14,290 as missing, presumed dead. A total of 7,996,888 uniformed servicemen are believed to have been killed in WWI, but almost two million are listed as missing, presumed dead. (MORE)
Answer . It was estimated that about 88,498 deaths were because of gas. 1,240,853 cases were non fatal.
During World War 1 (1914-1918) over 420,000 Australians served invarious services and arenas; out of that approximately 60,000 losttheir lives (14%) and 137,000 were wounded (32% of the total whoserved). Australian (as well as New Zealand) troops served with distinctionin many famous battles during… this time. Servicemen and women who served and lost their lives during the"Great War" are still honored in Australia and New Zealand on ANZACday, which is commemorated on the 25th of April each year.

These figures relate to 1914-17.. Military deaths: 1.7 million . Civilian deaths: 1.4 to 1.5 million
It is estimated about 15 percent of wounded soldiers died frominfection. However, this number is argued as a lack of modernknowledge made it difficult to determine if death was caused fromthe wound itself, subsequent infection, or from diseases that ranrampant among soldiers. The death rate from inf…ection and diseasevs outright combat death is estimated to between 4:1 and 9:1. (MORE)
Over 2000 canadians were killed in the battle of Ypres during WW1. This was the first time poison gas (made from chlorine) was introduced in WW1.
Answer . Central powers = 8,015,000 Allies = 9,646,000 Total 17,661,000 Figures are of Military Dead & Missing
More than 40 million, military and civilian, with about 20 million dead from all causes.
In WW1, history experts estimate around 16.5 million and in WW2,anywhere from 50-70 million, others say 72 million. Combining bothwould roughly give 88.5 million people deceased from both WorldWars.
While over 67,000 Canadians died fighting in WWI few remember the thousands of Canadian civilians that died. Officially only 2,000 died but many more died in the Merchant Marine. They were not military but were none the less targeted by German navy including U-boats. Thousands died at sea. They knew… they were heading out into danger but still they left. How many died? Thousands too many. (MORE)
In World War 1, about 58,000 to 67,000 people were killed. In WorldWar 2, about 45,400 people were killed.
well their was 20 deaths and 1 injurey but that's just what happens its war
About 16 million all together died in the war, about 9.8 millionwere soldiers. So with that in mind I'd say it wouldn't be much more than 1million, if that. ----------------------------- The numbers of aircraft in World War 1 were very small. Some of themost successful designs were produced in nu…mbers of 5 - 6,000. An indication of the pilot casualties can be seen from a questionraised in the British Parliament 5 months before the end of thewar. Of 14,166 Royal Flying Corps pilot casualties in France 8,000were a result of training accidents. The total number of all pilotcasualties would be unlikely to be more than 50,000 - 75,000 on theWestern Front. Casualties in training in England and Germany mayhave been on a similar scale if flight training was actuallycarried out before pilot officers were sent into the theater ofwar. (MORE)
Military Deaths by Country: (This does not include civlilian deaths. Many died due to starvation including 750,000 in Germany) So the actual death toll far exceeds the number of military deaths alone). Germany: 1,773,000. Russia: 1,700,000. France: 1,385,000.

Many animals were a causality of the first world war. Tens ofthousands of horses were lost, thousands of mules, thousands ofdonkeys, hundreds of carrier pigeons, thousands of dogs andmillions of rats.
58,268 in countig Another Answer: (The figure you have above is the number of Americans killed in the Vietnam War (1961-1973). Total WWI Americans killed was 117,465. And we were only in the war for just over 8 months.
around 651,000 in addition to another 953,886 wounded, and about 589,000 civilians dead. that makes them have the third highest allied casualties
over 45,000 anzacs died in ww1 in total around 170,000 enemy of the anzacs died as well.
A grand total of Newfoundlanders that were killed in World War One was 1,204 while a total of 2,314 were wounded.
As there are no definite figures on the amount of deaths duringWorld War 1, it is estimated that ten million refugees lost theirlives. This number includes the refugees from all countriesinvolved in said war.
In the three battles of Ypres, but mostly in the third (Paschendale), the British had more than 1 million soldiers died. The majority of these soldiers were British or French.
In World War I about 9.7 million soldiers died. In World War II about 24 million soldiers died.
5,482 Newfoundlanders served, 1,204 died and 2,314 wounded out of a population of about a quarter of a million.
Many German pilots died in world war two I'm pretty sure no one is exactly for sure but there may be some one out there who does know and type any comments and if you have any corrections please make them thanks
Probably less than a thousand; as tanks were new, not that many of them, slow, unreliable, not used alot, and broke down frequently.
Upwards of 16 million. There are different estimates as many soldiers and civilians were unaccounted for as missing or prisoners of war.
\nDepends which day.\n. \nTotal deaths (including missing in action): 12688500\n. \nLength of war: 28 June 1914 â 11 November 1918, so about 1800 days.\n. \nabout 7050 per day on average.\n. \nOn 1st July 1916, the British army lost 19,240 men.
Quite alot i think.Because you would have them from all the country's fighting. You'd have to.
Just over 2,000: . THE UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS IN THE WORLD WAR. (From report of Major Edwin N. McClellan. U. S. Marine Corps, Officer in Charge of Historical Division.) When a state of war was declared to exist on April 6, 1917, the United States Marine Corps was composed of 462 commissioned… officers, 49 warrant officers, and 13,214 enlisted men on active duty, a total of 13,725, and while the Corps was expanded to an actual strength, including reserves, of 75,101 officers and enlisted men, its high standard was never lowered. When these figures are compared with the approximate strength of 3,100 at the end of the Civil War, and of 4,800 at the end of the Spanish War, the growth of the Marine Corps is illustrated. . Despite the fact that on the outbreak of war, 187 officers and 4,546 enlisted men were on duty beyond the continental limits of the United States, and 49 officers and 2,187 enlisted men were serving on board the cruising vessels, of the navy, only five weeks later, on June 14, 1917, the Fifth regiment of Marines, consisting of 70 officers and 2,689 enlisted men, approximately one-sixth of the enlisted strength of the Marine Corps, competently organized and ready for active service, sailed on the Henderson, DeKalb and Hancock from the United States, forming one-fifth of the first expedition of American troops for service in France. . This regiment was soon joined by the Sixth regiment and the Sixth machine-gun battalion of Marines, and the Fourth brigade of Marines was organized, and as one of the two infantry brigades of the Second division of regulars engaged in actual battle in no less than eight distinct operations in France, of which four were major operations. . The French army recognized the splendid work of the Fifth and Sixth regiments of Marines by citing them no less than three times in army orders for achievements in the Chateau-Thierry sector, in the Aisne-Marne (Soissons) offensive, and in the Meuse-Argonne (Champagne). The Sixth machine-gun battalion was similarly cited for its work in the Chateau-Thierry sector and Aisne-Marne (Soissons) offensive. The Fourth brigade received a similar citation for its work in the Chateau-Thierry sector. Since two French army citations are sufficient to make an organization eligible for the award of the French fourragere, the high standard of the Marine units is evident. Information was received in Jan, 1920, that the War Department had accepted the award of the French fourragere in the colors of the ribbon of the Croix de Guerre for several army organizations and the three units of the Fourth brigade. . Within one year after the outbreak of the war the Marine Corps placed about as many enlisted men in France as there were in the Marine Corps when war was declared. . During the month of June, 1918, when the battle deaths around Hill 142. Bouresches, Belleau Wood and Vaux of Americans attached to the Second division amounted to 1,811 (of which at least 1,062 were Marines) and the nonfatal casualties of 7,252 more (of which 3,615 were Marines), the legislative strength of the Marine Corps was but 1,323 officers and 30,000 enlisted men; the actual strength on June 30, 1918, including reserves, was 1,424 officers and 57,298 enlisted men, and of this total about 300 officers and 14,000 enlisted men were in France. These latter figures include those Marines who suffered casualties in the battles of June, 1918. . Approximately 30,000 Marines were sent overseas to join the American Expeditionary Forces, and 1,600 for naval duty ashore. . During the war a great many additional Marine detachments were detailed to guard the radio stations, naval magazines, ammunition depots, warehouses, cable stations, and for other naval activities, and the detachments already established were largely augmented. No call was made for additional Marines for naval purposes that was not fully met, and this is of especial interest as the Marine Corps is essentially a part of the naval establishment, and its first duty is to fill all naval needs and requirements. It was believed to be essential that the Marine Corps should do its full part in this war, and for that reason it was absolutely necessary that the Marines should join the army on the western front, taking care, however, that this should not at any time interfere in the slightest degree with the filling of all naval requirements. . The Marine Corps, while maintaining the Fourth brigade of Marines, a total of 258 officers and 8,211 enlisted men, that fought in eight battle operations, suffering approximately 12,000 casualties, placed and maintained the Fifth brigade of Marines of the same strength in France, supplied the commanding general of the Second division and many officers of his staff; furnished a considerable number of officers to command army units of the Second and other divisions, and for staff and detached duty throughout the American Expeditionary Forces, participated in the naval aviation activities in France and in the Azores; and during the period of the war succeeded in performing in highly satisfactory manner the naval duties required of it including the maintenance of two brigades of prewar strength, standing by to protect the Mexican oil fields, and as an advanced base force in Philadelphia; one in Cuba, one in Santo Domingo, and one in Haiti; administered and officered the Haitian Gendarmerie and Guardia Nacional Dominicana, as well as providing efficient Marine detachments for numerous naval vessels, and maintaining garrisons at the numerous navy yards and naval stations in the United States; and in the Virgin Islands; Guantanamo Bay, Cuba; Pearl Harbor, Hawaiian Islands; Guam; Cavite and Olongapo, P. I.; Managua, Nicaragua; Peking, China; San Juan, P. R.; London, England; Cardiff, Wales; Paris, France; and the Azores; and supplied many officers and enlisted men for special and detached duty at home and abroad. (MORE)
Approximately 39 million military casualties. This number is highly disputed with most scholars using higher figures. This does not include civilian deaths which would about double this number.

Well over one million US troops reached France. Another million was in the pipeline when the war ended. The US sent over forty infantry division to France. US WWI divisions were huge, around 28,000 men, almost three times bigger than those of any other combatant nation. Just over 100,000 American…s were killed in the fighting. Most of these died in the last six months of the war, as US units were finally there, equipped and ready to get into the fight. (MORE)
Approximately 405,000. This was 275,000 combat deaths, and 130,000 non-combat deaths. These were aircraft crashes, vehicle crashes, and other accidents.

a large number of people died of sickness in WW1, there is no exact answer to this question
Overall, relatively few, though the psychological impact was great. Gas was generally very ineffective as a weapon (it was prone to be carried on the wind to places not originally intended), and tended to cause more injuries than deaths. Overall, the three major gases used in WW1 (chlorine, phospho…gene, and mustard) caused a total of about 100,000 deaths (the majority of them Russian). To give an idea of how ineffective it was, British statistics showed that of soldiers affected by gas, 3% died, 2% were crippled, 25% required longer-term care (but mostly recovered), and 70% were returned to duty within 2 months. Comparable statistics for those hit by artillery (the biggest killer of WW1): 40% dead/crippled, 10% long-term care, and 50% returned to duty. (MORE)
no budy knows how many died but there was a lot that died in that war
The amount of British Save troops that died or were injured were 60,000 all together by the end of the war 420,000 British troops were killed in WW1.
Over 10,000,000 people died as a result of World War I. An additional 30,000,000 people were wounded or missing.
The veterans of World War I are the *survivors* of the war, not thefatalities. There is no record of how many veterans of other wars(Mexican War, Civil War, Spanish-American War) died when theyreturned to service in World War I.
