Martyr | Define Martyr at Dictionary.com
"Martyr" doesn't mean someone who dies in a war.
A martyr is someone who dies for what they believe in.
I only know someone who is killed in a war is called martyr, but I don't know the exact term for the following people:
1. Someone who got injured or got wounded in a war.
2. The hypernym (general and extensive) term for anyone who sacrificed themselves in any way in a war.
