How Many Nazis died During The War? How did They die?

620,000 Nazi soldiers died out of 8 million Nazi during WWII. The soldiers died in combat, or an accident like stepping on a trap set by the British, Polish or French. Other possibilities are that the soldiers could of died from starvation in a concentration camp, also the soldiers died of diseases.

How does This Historical Event Continue to Impact our Lives Today? What Lessons did we Learn From This Event?

It continues to impact our lives today by keeping our Armies, Marines, Navy, Air Force stay alert in case of another attack or invasion that could lead to WWIII. I think we learned that if we are fighting against a country that is fighting another country at the same time, we could form an alliance to help defeat that country by flanking on multiple sides.
