How to stop someone from editing Wikipedia article?

It was on a war during the 17th century. The Original page stated 8 million deaths. Which is correct, but someone along the way edit that out to 800 hundred thousand. Which is false. I decided to edit the page back to the original death count, and stated 8 million. The same guy who edited to 800 hundred thousand, edited that figure back.

    Read the following webpage, on the Wikipedia website, my friend.

    Do you have evidence to support your claim that there were 8 million deaths, rather than the 800 thousand that this other person keeps changing it to?  If you do, add this as a link to support your findings.

    the Thirty Year's War did have 8 million casualties, but that doesn't mean 8 million deaths. You may need to do more research - and maybe the other person is correct. 'Casualties" does not mean "deaths."
