Something I just ran across while browsing the internet tonight. Not sure if this has been posted before, used the search function but couldn't find anything. Sorry if it's been posted already.

The Fallen of WWII

I really enjoyed this video, it gives a good perspective on just how devastating war can be. The video is just under 20 minutes long but is well worth it. There are 2 parts where you can pause the video and check out what battles the body counts belong to. Really interesting watch, I thoroughly enjoyed it.

What's mind-blowing to me is the fact that WWII racked up a bigger body count within the 6 years it was fought than all other wars that have been fought afterward combined, that's only 6 years of war compared to 70 years. Crazy when you really think about it. Maybe we don't have it so bad after all.
