Question
I found the answer but am confused, I found the answer by looking up Anzio Express.
It says:

The aftermath

The cost in men had been terrible. The Anzio landings left behind 20 900 Allied, and 10 300 German, casualtie

German casualties, were they collateral casualties?

Thanks

Answer
Greetings

German casualties were the result of shell fire, air attacks, artillery, rifle, mortar fire and even flame throwers.  German causalities were not an accidents they were deliberate.   Same with allied causalities.  Both sides sought to kill, wound or take captive as many enemy troops as they could.  

Thank you and enjoy the link.
