WWI in Mid-April, 1915: German Losses at 2 Million According to the Sunday Star Newspaper

In just over eight months since the beginning of the Great War, Germany has already suffered 2 million military casualties, including 800,000 combatant deaths according to French sources; a staggering number compared to modern society’s conception of ‘acceptable’ losses.

Our honored Delaware soldiers this week are Chief Cook John Joseph Keegan, Navyman Edwin Nelson Paynter, and Sergeant William Thomas Richardson.
