The table above has been compiled from three sources.

The highest estimate for each country was selected during compilation (military deaths are given as recent official figures and the civilian deaths are those estimated).

*The figures for these countries were very different in the three sources consulted

** The military deaths for Spain, a neutral country during the war, are attributed to
volunteers in the Axis (4500) and Allied (7500) armies. Also, about 10,000 Spaniards died in concentration camps. These figures may be very inaccurate and may be reviewed later. 

*** This table does not take into account the 3 million Indians who died due to famine in 1943.
