Sample Book Insights:
#1 The war in the Pacific cost the army 57,137 lives, and the Eighth Air Force lost more than 26,000 airmen. The end date for counting casualties was December 31, 1946, to account for those who died of lingering injuries.
#2 The United States suffered only 68 civilian deaths at Pearl Harbor, compared to the hundreds of thousands killed in Russia, China, Germany, Poland, and Japan. However, the American deaths are still a tragedy for any family.
#3 The deaths of the Japanese military and civilian populations were estimated at 2. 1 million and 8 million, respectively. The Allied bombings of Japanese cities, especially the firebombings of Tokyo and Dresden, as well as the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands.
#4 The final death toll for all the countries that sided with the Allies is between about 50 million and 100 million deaths. The statistics on a sheet of paper do not begin to describe the loss of life.
