war death statistics

What a project -- an impressively painstaking compilation of 20th century civilian and military casualties. Summary: lots of people were killed. Interesting are the comments on morality and how prejudgement leads to differing casualty estimations -- estimates vary wildly for controversial regimes, like Castro's Cuba (I've heard lots about), but are suspiciously round and agreed-upon for incidents that scholars seem to care less about, like the Congo Crisis of the 1960's (I've heard not so much about.)
