    I have just done a search and had over 2m results so it may well be 2.4m individual soldiers after all.

    A good tip that I was passed last night - if you know the date and location for a soldier's death, just fill in those details in the Date of Death boxes including the location of death box and click on the 'Exact' boxes and it will also list the other men killed in that area and on that day.
    I did try to do a Keyword search for the unit but transcription errors restrict the number of results (on the two results show, one mans unit is listed as Inf.Rgt Gr. Dschl while the other mans unit is Inf.Rgt Gr. Oschl)
    The two men shown below were from the same unit (3./Inf.Rgt GD), killed on the same day, at the same location and the cards confirm that both were killed by a direct hit from artillery so the chances are that they were sharing the same foxhole, or adjacent ones, when killed.

    If you have something to a driver, for example, it might be a good way to find out who was in the truck or car with him and the same goes for panzer crews.
