Sherman's total losses in the Atlanta campaign were substantial but his losses were about half those taken by Grant in the Overland campaign at the same time and less than the casualties (killed, wounded, missing/captured) suffered by Johnston/Hood.
However, Johnston's losses was considerably less than Sherman's up to the point in time when Davis relieved him and Hood took over command. It was only after Hood assumed command did the total casualties exceed those losses of Sherman.
