The pre planning for the invasion of Japan estimated 20,000 US casualties.

Since there were more casualties than that in some of the invasions of outlying Japanese Islands, I don't think this can be correct.

I think the 20,000 were projections of the first day casualties based on our previous amphibious landings.
