I think that the relevant Wikipedia articles would provide you with the relevant data in regards to this. If there's no data for this on the French Wikipedia (on these specific articles), please check the English Wikipedia as well.

Thank you very much.Did the statistics of 1870-1871 take in consideration the losses of the Germanic Confederation (Bavaria,Hesse,Bade etc.…) or unically Prussia ?

The 144,000 casualties in 1870-71 are for the Confederation, and may be high. M. Howard says 28,208 kia & dow and 88,488 wounded. Clodfelder says 28,306 kia & dow, and 89,732 wounded; but adds 12,147 died of disease, 319 other deaths, 4009 missing presumed dead and 10,129 missing/captured.

Thank you very much.The french losses were certainly 250 000: 200 000 + 20 000 victims of smallpox (german s detention) and 30 000 victims of the civil war (war of the interior/Commune de Paris).It significates 25 % of the mobilized.
In my family,12 mobilized and 3 deads (25 %).
-Imperial army:lieutnant of marines (colonial troops) Lucien Francois Xavier Dupuy Montbrun,dead of his wounds of Bazeilles (Ardennes) in the military hospital.
-National Mobil Guard:seargent Antoine Brouillet,dead of his wounds of Buzenval (west of Paris,near the US cemetary of 1944).
-Corps Francs de Bourgogne ("Garibaldi s army"):volunteer Simon Pastre,dead of his wounds of Dijon.
It is curious to constat that some US soldiers were engaged iun the Garibaldi s corp.
