¡ugly the "prisoners and missing" are excluded in the following casualty statistics, unless otherwise stated.
Another important point to be noted in connection with Table IX is the fact that the figures in Column 3, showing "killed and died," inrlude men who died from nonbattle injuries (including disease), as well as those who died from battle injuries. Exact figures are not available from all the countries shown in Table IX to permit these two classes of deaths to l>e separated. We have, how ever, the official figures for the United States and the British Empire and the approximate estimates for the other Mligercnts.
Table X shows (by country) the number of battle deaths and non-battle deaths, the total wounded (including deaths), and the percentages of battle deaths to the total numbers wounded.
