comment Did Japan make a contribution to World War II way out of proportion to its nominal relative GDP?
@PieterGeerkens: Those are very good points that are greatly appreciated. That was basically what I was trying to find out (on a per country basis). Will you vote to reopen the question so that you can post your comments as an answer regarding your country, Canada?

@T.E.D.: This question has four votes to reopen. Will you be the fifth? It has considerably edited for clarity from its original version, and at least one closer (Mark Wallace) seems to like the current version. Several people seem to have potential answers, based on the comments. –

@Oldcat: Very interesting comment that would make a good answer. Why don't you vote to reopen (if you haven't already done so) and post this as an answer.

@Oldcat: According to this source, warchronicle.com/numbers/WWII/deaths.htm 10 million Chinese deaths, 5,000 for Ethiopia. Tragic for the latter, but not exactly comparable.

@Oldcat: Japan started the war (against China) in 1937, if not 1931. America entered the war against Japan, Germany, and Italy within days of each other. Japan lasted two years longer than Italy at the back end, and three years longer at the front end, five years in all.

@StuartAllan: You make a good point. If we can re-open the question, perhaps you would like to convert your comment into an answer.

I would say that Japan outperformed even the figures that you linked. But only to an extent that can be explained by "overachieving." The other interpretation, while extant, isn't plausible.

I have narrowed and clarified the question to should we accept the linked GDP figures or are there others that more nearly explain Japan's contribution to the war. I wonder if the question can be reopened in its current form.
