Below are links which document, and tell the story of, victims of war.
Since this website is about and for Canada, the documentation here will focus on wars which Canada has participated in (See below section two, etc).
Section One: “How many civilians die” compared to “how many soldiers die”?
First it is important to discuss the ratio of civilian casualties to combatant casualties. This is called the “civilian casualty ratio.” This ratio has become worse for civilians over the course of history as weapons have become more deadly. According to a 2001 study by the International Committee of the Red Cross, the civilian-to-soldier death ratio in wars fought since the mid-20th century has been 10:1, meaning ten civilian deaths for every soldier death.
