The result is a mass of figures which
merely bewilders but which, is largely
based on estimates.
The events of the war and the
known facts of the present time Jus
tify certain general conclusions with
out wearying our brains with many
figures. Since the Germans have
been constantly engaged on both the
French and Russian fronts, their losses
must have exceeded those of France.
though the great numbers of Russian
prisoners they and the Austrtans have
taken will surely swell ths total Rus
sian loss to an equality with, If not to
an excess over the German. Austria
tost enormously In the first nine
months of the war and has suffered
a steady drain on the Russian and
Italian fronts. Turkey lost men by
tens of thousands in the first and the
present Asiatic campaigns and lost
heavily In the Gallipoll campaign.
The advantage of the allies consists
more In their superior ability to mske
good their losses than In any greater
losses they may have inflicted on their
