    The British (at least) produced almost daily cumulative casualty reports per theatre and looks like some of this has been extrapolated from these.

    Below is the one from the 18th February in Italy. The inclusion of a separate section for 'Bridgehead Force' (i.e. Anzio) was included at the personal request of Churchill. Interestingly it also breaks down casualties by arm of service.
