    A quick question.

    Does this:
    Он потерял их во время войны.

    mean:
    He lost them during/at the time of the war (during/at war time)

    ?

    Also, what are (if any) other common uses of "во время + time/something/etc..." ?

    Thanks.

    Yes, it does. Your sentence and translation are correct. Well, I don't know if there are any other common uses of во время + time.

    Maybe,
    во время еды, во время ужина, во время урока
    But these word combinations seem to concern the same use as you mentioned.

    In the example you gave, what does the word их mean/do?

    I guess he meant someone's parents/relatives.

    2andrewsco,

    Их is the accusitive form of Они, which means 'them'. Its the direct object of the verb 'потерял', so it has to be in the accusitive case.
