You are not likely to find any "breakdown of KIA/WIA" at all - such data could hardly be collected during a battle & in any case, to do so would have been regarded as being in extremely poor taste. A total dead estimate was often recorded - arising from the general practice of honouring the dead (including the enemy) by burial where possible after battle or hostilities had ceased. Jeremy.
