Sixty-three thousand Americans were lost yet I have not a clue of how many Vietnamese were lost. Although, it must be close to what the a Americans lost. The total war… loss is about three million killed and one million wounded in total. If you are asking about U.S. servicemembers, the answer is 58,209. Of these, 47,424 were combat related with the remaining 10,875 dying of other causes. This information came from American War and Military Operations Casualties: Lists and Statistics, a report completed by Hannah Fischer, Knowledge Resources Group, updated July 13, 2005. This report was compiled for the United States Congress. Answer The count I have from a book commemorating the Vietnam Wall says 59,127. Answer Here are some figures I have found for Vietnam.

Most historians might be inclined to say the Tet Offensive of '68; things got pretty rough during that time period...weekly US casualties were very high. But the Battle of th…e Ia Drang (1st Air Cav Division) in '65 could've been the worst (the film "We Were Soldiers..."); also NOT DEPICTED in the movie, there were over 300 dead GI's from that 3 day fight. The film, starrying Mel Gibson only showed his battalion...there were two involved, and the movie left the second battalion out of it. The book will cover both battalions however. Dak To in '66(?) fought by the 173rd Airborne Brigade may have had higher casualties still...they did lose more men than the Ia Drang fight; but then again it lasted longer. That second battalion at Ia Drang was cut to pieces in one day; they were in single file column and were hit from both sides by NVA regulars. The jungle was so thick they couldn't maneuver and had to stand and fight right then and there.
