WikiProject Military history/Assessment/Tag & Assess 2008[edit]

Article reassessed and graded as start class. --dashiellx (talk) 15:00, 11 June 2008 (UTC)

Background section[edit]

I tried to improve this section, and the top section above it, by correcting the grammar, but there are a few places where I don't know what the author meant. I put [clarification needed] tags in those places.

Also, I tried to fix/remove some of the broken wiki links, and removed 2nd, 3rd, etc. occurrences of good links. Joeblow179350 (talk) 18:18, 15 August 2008 (UTC)

Tie-in with "The Last Mission"?[edit]

The 2003 History Channel documentary, "The Last Mission," asserts that an allied air strike on August 14 unwittingly helped doom the coup attempt by causing a blackout in Tokyo (thus hampering the search for the hidden recording of the emperor's message). Is this claim generally accepted? It seems to me that it ought to be mentioned in this article, with whatever sources can be found. Even if the link to the air strike is not accepted by historians, it might still be worth mentioning (along with sources downplaying or debunking it). Richwales (talk) 19:34, 14 February 2009 (UTC)

Poor translation in the last two sections[edit]

The final section, dealing withn the death of Mori, should be rewritten by someone familiar with the events. The current version includes inaccurate verbs and tenses. I rewrote "August 14" a bit for the same reason. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 4.230.117.249 (talk) 00:26, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Is there any possibility that the reference "The Pacific War Research Society" could be this book: The Pacific War Research Society, Japan's Longest Day ISBN13:978-4770028877, ISBN10:4770028873 - I've shortly checked page 283 (referenced in the article) with the Amazon "Look inside" and it seems to be this book.

Reference "Butow"[edit]

Is there any possibility that the reference "Butow" could be this book: Robert J. C. Butow, Japan's Decision to Surrender ISBN13:978-0804704601, ISBN10:0804704600 - This book is already referenced in reference-point 10 of the article.
