There's another way to measure that tragic data too...the deadliest based on the number killed compared to the number engaged. That would change the "deadliest" battles somewhat as opposed to measuring the sheer number of dead, regardless of how many combatants were actually engaged.

Another way to look at this picture is deadliest depending on the side. Some very deadly battles saw relatively few casulties and deaths on one side but a very high number on the other side.

You can get really compulsive and also research which battles resulted in the highest number of POWs. Or research which battles had the highest number of officers killed (or killed and wounded.)
