MILHIST B-class checklist[edit]

This article has a couple of major issues; first, the two books need to be turned into proper refs with in-line citations. Second, it glaringly omits the Battle of Coronel which is probably the most notable incident in the Pacific theater during the FWW. This needs to be rectified post-haste. Other than those two pieces, the article seems to be ok. Parsecboy (talk) 20:58, 29 May 2008 (UTC)

Incorrect label for illustration[edit]

The illustration here is mislabeled, as the caption on the picture itself indicates. It is *not* the Japanese conquest of Tsingtao. Rather the caption states that this is one of the battles from Japan's Siberian Intervention. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.18.251.43 (talk) 00:37, 13 February 2011 (UTC)

It also calls their opponents German and Austrian. Perhaps something is being lost in translation. Srnec (talk) 06:09, 6 March 2011 (UTC)

Ending date[edit]

January 5, 1919 - anyone knows where this date comes? Seems like nonsense but has stayed in article for quite long time. Although I guess it is sort of unclear what would be good ending date.--Staberinde (talk) 18:38, 8 January 2013 (UTC)

The last german force in new guinea under the command of Hermann Detzner surrendered on that date, all other groups of german combatants in new guniea had been captured and dissolved by 1915 (excepting transient merchant raiders). Outside of new guniea the last belligerant group of combatants from the central powers in the theater was a band of escaped pow's under the command of Felix von Luckner, they were captured on 21 december 1917.XavierGreen (talk) 21:35, 8 January 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for clarifying. I added little note to infobox about that.--Staberinde (talk) 15:33, 9 January 2013 (UTC)
While the surrender of Dretzner is worth a mention in the article, it is not the end date of the war. If the surrender of the last soldier is to be taken as the end date, then World War II went on for decades after 1945, until the last Japanese soldier came out of hiding.MayerG (talk) 03:24, 24 April 2014 (UTC)
