Casualties in the Pacific numbered in the thousands. Casualties on the Eastern Front numbered in the millions. Stalingrad/Kursk hands down.
Percentage, not numbers outright. The US lost approx 10% of their forces at Guadalcanal, the Australians lost 21% of their forces in New Guinea. Thats what I mean. Percentage of soldiers lost in battle is a good way of figuring the impact.
