Battle casualties, again

A while ago I wrote a article comparing Waterloo with Bakhmut. That was in August 2023. We are in February 2024 and I predict that soon I will have to say the same about Avdiivka.

The city is about to be encircled the coming month and is in fact already ~ technically encircled (all of its supply roads are within fire range of Russians). I think that Avdiivka has already surpassed many times the death toll of Bakhmut.

The amounts of deaths are now also becoming comparable to the WWII Operation Bagration which had about 400000 German and 180000 Red Army kills.

The Soviet operation was named after the Georgian prince Pyotr Bagration (1765–1812), a general of the Imperial Russian Army during the Napoleonic Wars.
