Default Auld Lang Syne



Auld Lang Syne
By extension, it is also sung at funerals, graduations, and as a farewell or ending to other occasions



World War II fatality statistics vary greatly. Estimates of total dead range from 50 million to over 70 million. The sources cited in this article document an estimated death toll in World War II of 62 to 78 million, making it the deadliest war ever. When scholarly sources differ on the number of deaths in a country, a range of war losses is given, in order to inform readers that the death toll is disputed. Civilians killed totaled from 40 to 52 million, including 13 to 20 million from war-related disease and famine. Total military dead: from 22 to 25 million, including deaths in captivity of about 5 million prisoners of war.
