Summary Data

Painting by Emanuel Leutze of George Washington crossing the Delaware

While DCAS focuses primarily on detailed U.S. casualty data from the Korean War to the present, the agency maintains historical data dating back to the American Revolutionary War. This data is valuable as it represents the human cost of war and identifies the great surges in casualties that occurred as early as the American Civil War, continued to rise proportionately through two World Wars, and became more regional as the U.S. and coalition forces fought a succession of wars in the Middle East.
