First off, I have to say that i've never believed the figure that is 'accepted' simply because it is so hard to say with shoddy record keeping. And wounds incurred during the war may not have killed right away. Only problem is, if a man died thirty years later as a direct cause of his ancient wound, is that a battlefield death? Is it a war death? This is an interesting article for sure.
