Hey yall. We have all read casualty figures for battles far and wide, but something about them has always "nagged" at me. I understand that some of those listed as missing, could have either been captured, killed (but not located), lost (to rejoin their unit later), etc. The wounded figures all battles, seem to outnumber those killed by a wide margin. What is never followed up on is how many of those wounded actually died as a result. Is anyone aware of research or a study having been done that estimates (each battle would probably vary slightly depending on a variety of factors) on average how many wounded recovered or died?
