The number of deaths during this period is about 178 million people. That’s almost 7% of the 1950 population.

The biggest wars

The greatest war in proportion to the respective population is the First World War. The greatest battle is the first Ypres battle of this war.

We notice that there were as many people involved in the Second World War, compared to the first. But it has generated more deaths. This is mainly due to the extent of the territories on which it stood, the bombings, the famine, the exterminations.

Some conflicts would require a third column for belligerents, with for example the Balkan war: Serbs, Croats, and Bosnians. Not to mention the Kosovars.

Other

There is a huge lack of battles, wars and campaigns for which there is very little information in ancient times or the number of people involved is less than 10,000 before 1900, 50,000 after 1900.

In the future

It would be naïve to believe that there will be no other continental, global wars. The possession of nuclear bombs by many countries in recent decades have not prevented wars and massacres from generating millions of deaths. We must continue to multiply common projects, to invest energy in diplomacy, to transfer the need for conquest to competition in science, research, engineering, space.
