You don't get to see your lost men after every phase. Thus let's just add the remaining recruits instead of subtracting your lost soldiers.
The remaining recruits are always displayed before each phase:



So here's the final formula optimization:

Reached mission * 100,000 + Phase * 10,000 + Remaining Recruits * 100

Example for the above screenshot:
7*100,000 + 1*10,000 + 51*100 = 715,100

If you manage to beat mission 10 take a screenshot of the briefing screen for mission 11 phase 1.

You don't have to show a screenshot of the hill anymore.

My first ever go. I couldn't work out Mission 6 at all and lost all men on the first phase.

Only the buildings that "produce" soldiers count as enemy buildings. Just throw a grenade or shoot a rocket at the only stone house that spawns soldiers.

From another play it seems that buildings with doors (that are visible on the map) are enemy buildings, and they are destroyed when the door has been blown off.

A second go, I got past mission 6 but I couldn't get to the top of the map on M7P1
