Wow, this article is of high quality. I dont want to jump the gun, but do you have plans to nomminate it as a featured article? It's also a wonderful example of how to source and write an article using footnotes. --Stbalbach 13:28, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Thanks for the compliments! As a matter of fact, I was just planning to put the article up for peer review. By the time that expires, the holidays will be over, and I'll have the time to devote to a Featured Article run. That said, please let me know if you have any suggestions. — BrianSmithson 15:44, 20 December 2005 (UTC)

Questioning whether this page should be under Category: Mercenary. It seems completely inappropriate. Khorne25 (talk) 22:49, 25 November 2010 (UTC)

FAR needed[edit]

This is a 2006 FA that has not been maintained to standards ... there is a good deal of uncited text and opinion (not all of which is tagged). Is anyone able to bring the article to standard to avoid a Featured article review? SandyGeorgia (Talk) 19:37, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
