Abstract : This volume of the final report contains tables presenting composite data on environmental and operational variables of the 73 engagements (45 minor contingency and 28 extended insurgency) used for calculating casualty rates. Tables presenting the casualties and the rates are also presented. The bulk of this volume of the final report is comprised of data sheets for individual engagements. Data presented includes information descriptive of the operational and environmental variables and specific circumstances of each engagement and the strengths and casualties of the forces participating in the engagements. A brief narrative is provided for each engagement. Data and narratives are given for 81 engagements, including the 73 that provided the data base for the analysis and the eight engagements that were withdrawn from the analysis because they lacked complete, specific casualty information or were mass capitulations which would have distorted the casualty rates. A bibliography of sources consulted for the data in this study, definitions of terms used, and a list of abbreviations follow the individual engagement data sheets. Keywords: Data bases.
