Cleanup[edit]

This article is very badly written, so much so that it is hard to tell the facts that are supposed to be conveyed by it. Many of the red links have counterparts in the English Wikipedia and would be blue if they were corrected. No attempt is made to relate it to current conflicts in the Caucasus. Some English sources, provided any exist (?), would be helpful if they were added here. — A lizard (talk) 02:21, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

62,000 troops in the Red Army[edit]

The anecdote about the desertion is interesting because they way it is written, it suggests that there were fewer than 62,000 troops in the Red Army during WWII. In a word, no. :) Did the author of this page mean that there were fewer than 62,000 Caucasian soldiers in the Red Army during that war? The way it was written, it is hard to tell. — A lizard (talk) 02:21, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

Hmm, I think this criticism is correct, but I know that the article is far from complete. It VERY difficult to find any free sources in English language about that time, moreover, probably this theme is not clearely understood. The only text I found is written by Chechns themselves.: History of chechnya in 19th cent WWII in Chechnya. These writing seems to be an attempt to aquilt the collaboration. The theme is rather taboed. So, some relialible sources (in Russian) I found were not about the Chechens, so the current article consist of the different fragments, which give an idea about events, but not on the whole. Other sources are rather contradictory. And the last, my English, far from perfect possibly discomforts reading, such as in case of 62,000-men Soviet Army. Being translated into Russian this construction would be understood well :)--Üñţïf̣ļëŗ (see also:ә? Ә!) 19:41, 18 December 2007 (UTC)
As for the red links, the most of Chechnya's placed have no articles on wikipedia.--Üñţïf̣ļëŗ (see also:ә? Ә!) 19:41, 18 December 2007 (UTC)

KIA?[edit]

Schouldnt commander Mairbek Sheripov also be noted as killed in action? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 83.226.50.232 (talk) 21:50, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
