The Fallen of World War 2

It is hard to imagine horror and scale of certain wars. World War 2 in particular. You can read the facts and figures but it is still really hard to visualise. This video from historian Neil Halloran helps put things into perspective. It basically shows the figures in a very visual way and some of it is pretty shocking. I knew the Russians and Chinese had a particularly nasty time of it but this really drives home just how bad.

I will soon be going back to topics like astronomy and science, because frankly I prefer to be filled with wonder and hope at what humans can achieve, rather than be reminded how much we can suck. Anyway, ‘The Fallen of World War 2’ is well done and I thought it deserved a share.
