Chart showing military, civilian and total deaths for the Allied and the Axis Powers during World War II, 1939-1945 .

The y-axis shows both deaths in millions and percentage of population.

Red bars: Military deaths in millions.
Green bars: Civilian deaths in millions.
Stacked bar (Red+Green): Total deaths in millions.
Light blue bars: Total deaths (1945) as percentage (%) of population (1939).
Axis countries are at the bottom, headed by an orange bar and with a grey background (Germany, Japan, Romania, Hungary & Italy).
Allied countries are at the top, headed by a blue bar.
Other countries' statistics are collected into the topmost grey item "Other".

The inserted top right piechart shows the total percentage of military and civilian deaths for the Allied and the Axis Powers. The original piechart version can be found here: Image:WorldWarII-DeathsByAlliance-Piechart.png.
