you could try this website:

www.fas.org

the federation of american scientists does maintain links to government agencys, including dept of defense related matters.

the most reliable source is www.historychannel.com

try these two first.

Bear in mind, the Soviets and the Chinese creatively rewrote their own numbers, so this makes much of the data from them unreliable, even with the Cold War over.

For stats on Australia you can go to www.awm.gov.au and then go to the link Australian Military Statictics. This will give you all the facts and figures pertaining to Australia in all our conflicts.

Thats an understatment, concidering It took 50 years for the freken government to even acknowledge Operations Mars and it's 1/2 million casulties.

Yup. the Soviets also heavily 'increased' German losses for Zitadelle (Kursk). In fact, the German losses for that operation were no greater as a percentage of forces committed than for any other battle during 1943.
