Actually, at the end of the Revolutionary War, the infant countrywas $25 million in debt to other countries and to wealthy personswho loaned much of the money that financed th…e War (when thegovernment assumed all the debts it came to 79 million dollars, butassumption is another day). The Dutch, now Holland, but then calledthe Republic of Batavia, loaned Robert Morris, "The Financier ofthe Revolutionary War," almost $13 million. The balance of themoney was loaned to the United States by other countries such asFrance and Spain, all enemies of England. The Continental Congressalso floated promissory notes, promising to pay the buyer facevalue at the end of the War. Alexander Hamilton, First SecretaryTreasurer of the United States, immediately went to Congress andurged that the War notes be paid. Of course his family, theSchuylers, the Van Rensselears, owned "the Lions' Share" of themand had bought them for pennies on the dollar. But that's anotherstory.
By the end of world war 1 the United States had spent about $32 billion. United States : $22,625,253,000 Great Britain : $35,334,012,000 France : $24,265,583,000 …Russia : $22,293,950,000 Italy : $12,413,998,000 Belgium : $1,154,468,000 Romania : $1,600,000,000 Japan : $40,000,000 Serbia : $399,400,000 Greece : $270,000,000 Canada : $1,665,576,000 Australia : $1,423,208,000 New Zealand : $378,750,000 India : $601,279,000 South Africa : $300,000,000 British Colonies : $125,000,000 Germany : $37,775,000,000 Austria-Hungary : $20,622,960,000 Turkey : $1,430,000,000 Bulgaria : 815,200,000 . 330 billion

WW1 Costs . 1 billion dollars. Actually, World War I cost $338 Billion Dollars. Sorry, but you aren't Dr.Evil. "I want one billion dollars!!"
You ask a challenging question; the answer depends upon how you do the accounting. There are a lot of different "costs" being reported by different sources, many of whom did n…ot get their information from reliable primary sources.. What items should be included in the "cost"? And do you use the value of the dollar in 1965-1975 or the current value of the dollar?. A 2008 report of the Congressional Review Service of the US Library of Congress has estimated the direct financial cost of the Vietnam War at 111 billion 1975 dollars, which is 676 billion 2008 dollars. However, this is the excess cost over-and-above the estimated cost of maintaining a "normal" military force in peacetime, not the actual total spent.. Another approach to looking at the cost is to look at the total of military spending for the Vietnam War period 1965-1975.. 1965 -- 51 $billion .......... 1971 -- 79 $billion. 1966 -- 58 $billion .......... 1972 -- 79 $billion. 1967 -- 71 $billion .......... 1973 -- 77 $billion. 1968 -- 82 $billion .......... 1974 -- 79 $billion. 1969 -- 83 $billion .......... 1975 -- 87 $billion. 1970 -- 82 $billion. On this basis, the US spent 828 billion 1975 dollars on all military operations during the Vietnam War period, which is $5 trillion 2008 dollars. The CRS report mentioned above is assuming that we would have spent 80% of this amount even if there had been no Vietnam War.. Please click the link below for the CRS report quoted in this answer.
Hundreds of billions of dollars. The US citizens bought something like 183 billions of dollars worth of war bonds. The atomic bombs cost over 2 billion dollars. Have heard a f…igure of 2 million billion dollars but it is doubtful that figure could be correct because life was lower costing then.
About 8 billion dollars
It depends on how many troops you pay and what you use to fight with.
It has been argued that the atomic bomb cost aound 2 billion dollars for the 3 bombs: 1 test bomb and the 2 actaully dropped. Almost every penny of that was spent on the indu…strial infrastructure needed to make the bombs. The cost of the bombs themselves was virtually negligible compared to that. 24 bombs were scheduled for production in 1945: 1 test bomb and 23 to be dropped on Japan. It is unlikely these extra bombs had they been produced would have raised the cost much at all. The actual cost of a nuclear weapon's physics package is still classified.
they USUALLY cost about 40$.
Approximately $700 Billion in 2007 dollars.
Depends on where you buy it. Different places have different cost. But if you want cheap, I suggest Ebay because my mom is a seller on there and most stuff she buys from there… is cheap. It's an online store if you don't know what it is.
In Iraq War
10 billion a month
In World War 2
In terms of lives lost, 106,207 American soldiers were killed in the pacific theatre of WWII, aproximately 1/3 of all American war deaths. The USA spent at least $341 billion …total on WWII.
