> I'm so glad there is such a contrast between the deaths in past conflicts and this one. 15,000 at Antietam, 2,500 at Omaha Beach, I was going to put British casualites at the Somme but half a million is too unbelievable, I must have made a mistake writing it down.
Yep - misplaced decimal. Battle of the Somme resulted in 57K casualties. 19K of them dead.
And that was in many orders of magnitude of less days than 5 years.
