I find it somewhat incredible that you can list those executions so unapologetically and dispassionately. "Only 346" is 346 too many for my taste. Even under a brutal civilian justice system, no more than 40 of those executions (for murder and "mutiny") would have happened. I am no historian but I should like to suggest that most of those were carried out to keep the others in line (yes, I know the cliche). Putting your statistic alongside the overall war casualties in an attempt to minimise its impact is both disingenuous and utterly irrelevant.
