Data on civilian casualties of war?

I am interested in seeing some comparative data on the civilian casualties of warfare, particularly in the 20th and 21st centuries. Are there any great analyses of this topic, perhaps on DVD, YouTube, or illustrated in books with graphs? (I have a hard time envisioning the magnitude of these things when they are presented only as bald numbers.) I started thinking about this topic after watching The Fog of War
, which is a documentary about Robert McNamara
. He presented some amazing comparative information about World War II and the Cold War. I would love to acquire a similar critical context for other conflicts, including the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
