Deadliest Battles in Human History

This video shows the casualties count in battles in world history. The list includes both sieges (not technically battles but usually yielding similar combat-related deaths) and civilian casualties during the battles. Battles in Large Scale Wars (such as World War I and World War II) are grouped in one statistic.

Figures display numbers of all types of casualties when available (killed, wounded, missing, and sick) but may only include number killed.
