The Napoleonic Wars had an extremely high death toll. European military casualties are estimated to have been at 2,500,000. Added to that, another 1,000,000 civilian deaths occurred as a result of the wars as well. These figures are on the low end of the dispute among historians. Some believe, the death toll was closer to 7,000,000 than 3,500,000.
