In the American Civil War there were less than ten battle where over 1000 people perished.

That was a huge part on our outlook for WW1
We were afraid to get involved during the build up of it, because we saw how big battles got during the Napoleonic wars.
>>
>>550715
Ausfag here, I always assumed casualties meant the how many people were 'taken out of the fight' so to speak. Wounded/killed/missing doesn't matter.

Yeah fair enough, I don't blame the Americans for joining late. I doubt that any of the countries would have signed up to the war knowing the amount of lives they would throw away.

War of the Pacific, best day in Chile's history, we gained the territory that sustains our economy to this day, we landlocked Bolivia, and fucked their shit up along Peru, with a bunch of fearsome soldiers fueled with "cachupilca del diablo" which is a shitty liquor mixed with gunpowder that created a fungi within the bottle that gave the soldiers a berserk effect (a la vikings with amanita muscaria), whenever they drank it before battle.
