It is obvious that I am dealing with mild grade retards that do not know the difference between their bloated opinions of their "knowledge" and of themselves in their nit wit world and greater historical reality. So be it! It is a SOLID FACT that all armies try to hide their losses from their adversaries, past, current and future, for a host of good and practical reasons. That is one reason for the existence of Intelligence agencies. A fair rule of thumb when dealing with the US army "facts and figures" is that the US tends to report perhaps half their actual losses and "over estimates" their adversaries by a factor of four. A good example of this tendency is the battle of Cold Harbor in the US Civil War. Compare admitted Union losses at Cold Harbor with estimated Confederate losses at Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. You will find that both figures are near identical at about 7,000 killed, wounded, captured. Now consider this: About 15,000 Confederates took part in Pickett's Charge, so their loss was a bit less than 50 percent. At Cold Harbor approximately 40,000 Union soldiers attacked very well prepared Confederate positions in exactly the same manner of Pickett's men and yet only lost 7,000 men? All sources say that Grant ordered a second attack and his men would not do it. Not even when their offices ordered them at gun point! By all accounts the Yankees were in severe shock from the Confederate meat grinder. My belief is that the Yankees actually lost something near 15,000 men at Cold Harbor. I also believe that Hein Severloh racked up about 2,000 GIs at Omaha because that is what the real facts indicate.
