Absolute War: Soviet Russia in the Second World War
Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group, 2008/11/26 - 880 ページ
In Absolute War, acclaimed historian and journalist Chris Bellamy crafts the first full account since the fall of the Soviet Union of World War II's battle on the Eastern Front, one of the deadliest conflicts in history.
The conflict on the Eastern Front, fought between the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany between 1941 and 1945, was the greatest, most costly, and most brutal conflict on land in human history. It was arguably the single most decisive factor of the war, and shaped the postwar world as we know it. In this magisterial work, Bellamy outlines the lead-up to the war, in which the fragile alliance between the two dictators was unceremoniously broken, and examines its far-reaching consequences, arguing that the cost of victory was ultimately too much for the Soviet Union to bear. With breadth of scope and a surfeit of new information, this is the definitive history of a conflict whose reverberations are still felt today.

combat, for whatever reason, during the conflict. That is, killed in action; died of
wounds, illness or frostbite; shot by their own side for cowardice or other crimes; ...
That can be clearly seen in Figure 1.1, which shows the 'population pyramid' for
the Russian Federation in 1990, and in Figure 1.2, which shows that for 2005.
