there were so many deaths for different reasons.one of the most comon was of disease. the soldiers had to walk through puddles of water, sometimes infected swamps, and they could possibly contract something through their feet.also, the conditions in the trenches were horrific.a lot of people died from getting gassed during war. many would go blind and some would actually die, but gas was deadly. many would die from woulnds or just simply from being thirsty or hungry. just like any other war.

AnswerFor most of the war, the two sides were very evenly matched.

Total World War 2 Deaths was 72 Million and 12% of it was Axis Military recorded Deaths. So 12% of 72 Million = 8.64 Million.

Their population was 35.6 million. It decreased %3.48 because of World War 1. There were 651,000 military deaths, and 589,000 civilian deaths. So in all, 1,240,000 Italians died.

World War II, by a large margin. World War I saw about 8,500,000 military deaths. By contrast World War II produced between 20,000,000 and 30,000,000 military deaths, along with another 20,000,000 or so civilian deaths. Michael Montagne World War II, by about a factor of ten. Michael Montagne

People died :(There were so many things that happened in World War One. For instance there were alliances formed like the Tripe Alliance, there were many deaths and slaves being captured among other things.

Probably not. So many deaths, so much new terrible ways to kill people. And the terms of the surrender directly contributed to WWII.

It was not Nationalism. It was facism. Nazism. That was what so many germans embraced during the 2nd world war when Hitler was in power. It resulted in the deaths of nearly 10 million Jewish people and other 'inferiors' that Hitler disliked callously.

There is no exact record of how many people world wide died from sicknesses during World War 2 because it was not an age of computer records and millions were simply buried and never were reported to officials. There were also crooked officials who did not record a lot of the deaths. Did you know that a little more than half of the deaths in both world wars were due to worldwide epidemics of flu, starvation, exposure to the cold and extreme heat, insect bites, snake bites, infections of wounds, bites, cuts, scrapes and tropical diseases? Some of the injuries sustained did cause death but often times after the war so that added to the total count of deaths during the war time. More civilians died in World War 2 than did military personnel.

Horses were a common death in the Civil War because officers would ride them and when a enemy fired they would aim for the horse because the horse was giving support to the officer so there were alot of horse deaths. Union horse deaths: 32,600 Confederate horse deaths: 45,798
