European Theatre of World War l- 9 million death toll
European Theatre of World War ll- 60 million death toll
Grand total 69 million
All of which between 1914 – 1918 & 1939 – 1945 (10 years) thus a rate of 6.9 million deaths a year.
By the way this does not include the millions of deaths inflicted by the Soviet Union during peace time.
Is Africa really more violent than Europe?
The deadliest war in Africa was the ”Second Congo War” between 1998 – 2003 with 4 million deaths.
My own nan one of the few black people in London to endure the blitz survived the destruction of 85% of her town and 1/3 of London which almost always followed with the robbery of bombed homes by local London gangs who took advantage of the devastation. eg Frankie Fraser the deserter. London only recovered during the 1980s and compared to other European cities such as Berlin London had it easy.
Nothing of that magnitude has ever occurred in Africa.
So why the stereotype that Africa is violent when in fact history shows us it was Europe. It is funny how WW1 and WW2 are put to the side while expressing a few civil wars in Africa.
Name me a ”world war” which started in Africa….
Who cares about the weapons the death count means alot actually
How am I not black? Explain.
@ Thius so the final solution for Jews made complete sense then????
Most of these deaths were caused by guns. Afrcans have had guns since the 15th century.
So are you trying to make excuses for almost 70 million deaths? So the death of almost 70 million people was all simply the due to sophisticated weapons?
What was so sophisticated or civilized about the Holocaust? Explain.
@ Chelsea you idiot most deaths were caused by guns stop talking out of your asss.
What about the Soviets who starved to death the Ukraine in Holodomor no weapons at all involved at all.
Tell me a situation in Africa where millions were purposely starved to death like during the Holodomor.
Well show me anything in Africa which compares to the Holocaustor Holodomor, untill then I rest my case. Both of which did not need sophisticated rather pure violence or what you would call evil.
Show me anything worse than the Holocaust & Holodomor
Nazis & Soviets combined lol its almost pathetic to try and defend their actions if you care about humanity. Nothing since then has come close.
