Controversial sentence[edit]

Before the following sentence can be re-integrated into the main article, the substance needs to be expanded, and it needs the support of an additional in-line citation:

  • "According to one source, the current Imperial Line is northern."
-- <.ref>http://www.east-asian-history.net/textbooks/172/Rest%20of%20the%20Story.htm<./ref>?

I would have thought that this blunt assertion would need a context. A reader unfamiliar with this subject needs more information in order to evaluate the validity and possible consequences of this controversial claim. --Tenmei (talk) 14:45, 19 February 2008 (UTC)

Major revision[edit]

I have put in an entirely new article covering this time period.--K.H. (talk) 06:17, 6 December 2008 (UTC) I will be integrating footnotes into the body of the text in the next few days.

Ideological and economic basis of war[edit]

Nihonjoe was unquestionably correct in deleting the following sentence:

Both the ideological and economic basis of the Nanboku-chō War, and the rise of the Muromachi regime will be examined.

However, I have moved the sentence here as a reminder -- this overview/concept needs to be re-integrated into the article when a relevant source citation can be appended.

Personally, I guess I've been so focused on parsing the political aspects of the Nanboku-chō period that I almost forgot about its ideological and economic genesis. When I read this deleted sentence, I was struck by my curiously narrowed perspective -- when did that happen, I wondered?

My sense of personal surprise in reading this otherwise unremarkable sentence was the motivation for creating this odd thread. I'll get back to this in due course; or someone else will follow-up, I suppose. --Tenmei (talk) 16:00, 5 March 2009 (UTC)

WP:Japan & MilHist Assessment Commentary[edit]

This is without doubt an excellent article. However, I rated it as "Start" by WP:Military history, and C-class for WP:Japan. Here are some points for improvement:

  • References: This is the weakest point. There are plenty of sources, but most of them are not in the accepted Wikipedia format of in-line citations. Some are, many aren't.
  • Style: I'm a little surprised that there aren't more blue-links in the article.
  • Supporting Materials: Some images of some kind would be helpful; battle scenes, paintings of major players, something. I'm sure there is plenty on Wikimedia Commons.

Good luck. Boneyard90 (talk) 18:12, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
