That statistic of 963 German soldiers of General rank or above dying during the war has bubbled back into my addled brain on Twatter. (Including 110 suicides & 22 executions.) Robert Lyman (very good Slim biography) then wondered what Soviet figures might be. Not sure we've looked at other nations, so has anybody seen total figures? I originally found the German stat remarkable a decade or so ago, not just for the suicides & executions, but that there even were almost a thousand Generals to lose, so I suppose total number of higher ranks have to be considered. No idea still just how many German Generals there were in total.
