Hello. Will you please check the sentence for me? Is the second part of it natural, maybe it needs the article?
"Many people have died since the time of (the?) occupation".
Thank you for all your help.

  • English -

    I'd keep "the" in the sentence.

    Will your reader(s) know which occupation you're referring to?
