Feb 11, 2020 · World War II ended with the unconditional surrender of Germany in May 1945
One is because in the most basic terms, World War II was an epic battle between good and evil, and two, the United States came out of the war on top with little damage to their own country.
The main difficulties in arriving at an overall total arise from major uncertainties as to the number of Soviet soldiers killed in World War 2. The figures for military dead for the Soviet Union range from 8.8 million to 10.7 million.
See the link to the Wikipedia article, which (as accessed on 13 April 2010) gives a worldwide total of military dead ranging from about 22.6 million to about 25.5 million (and an overall worldwide range, including civilians, of 62.4 million to 78.4 million).
