A great video about the deaths in WW2 compared to other wars. As per discussion in the podcast.

Just for perspective on the numbers.

Wagrids post earlier on largely hits the nail on the head in how WW1 is viewed from a British perspective. A huge loss of life, fighting for European Imperialism and class based interests.

The deaths in WW2 are of an order of magnitude above all other wars though. The video explains this really well.
