There were nearly 1 million war casualties during the period September 1939 to May 1940, albeit the majority of those from the innasion of Poland. However, there were also approx 10,000 dead during the course of the invasion of Denmark and Norway. There were also thousands of deaths at sea during that same period(including a relative of mine from who served on the aircraft carrier HMS Courageous sunk 150 SW of Mizen Head on 17th Sept 1939).
2 dead policemen is not a war.
