I used to know only the phrase 'a wounded soldier' until I came across the phrase 'an injured soldier' in the COLLINS COBUILD DICTIONARY OF ENGLISH USAGE. Do both mean the same thing?
In the entry of 'hurt' of this dictionary, there is also this example sentence:
The soldier was badly hurt.
Does 'badly hurt' mean the same thing as 'badly wounded'?
They could mean the same but wounded, with reference to soldiers, implies an injury inflicted by enemy action.
Injured or hurt could be the result of accident or anything else.
