The High Cost of WWII

World War II Memorial, Washington, DC – © David H. Enzel, 2022

The Second World War lasted for 2,174 days, cost $1.5 trillion and claimed the lives of over 50 million people. That represents 23,000 lives lost every day, or more than fifteen people killed every minute, for six long years.
