WWII Casualties by State

World War II (WWII) started in 1939 when Adolf Hitler’s Nazi Germany invaded Poland. The conflict involved most of the world’s countries and ended in 1945 with the liberation of German-occupied territories and the unconditional surrender of Germany on May 8, 1945. The Second World War is also considered to be the deadliest military conflict of all time, with about 70 to 85 million deaths over the world. Military deaths more specifically are estimated at 21 to 25 million. 

The United States was an important actor in the conflict. Soldiers went forth from every state to fight in Europe and in the Pacific. The United States incurred a total of 407,316 military casualties throughout the duration of the war. The number of WWII soldiers who were killed in action does not represent all of those who were wounded, captured, or missing in action. 

From state to state, the number of WWII casualties can range from under 100 in some states, to 30,000 casualties in others. Of the total number of servicemen in the U.S. military from 1941—1945, only 38.8% of them were volunteers, while 61.2% of them were drafted.
