|A fact from this article was featured on Wikipedia's Main Page in the On this day... section on August 15, 2014.|
I use wikipedia alot, though this is my first time actually editing or suggesting something. I noticed the article said that the name change came form a quote from churchhill claiming he was "Dragooned into it"; in reality that was the common myth amoungst soldiers at the time but it turned out to be false. This is acourding to a reliable source, Airborne by E. M. Flanagan JR, Ballantine Books, Copyright 2002.
Since I'm new it would be apreciated if somebody else fixed this.

OK, I figured out how to edit adn add the fact, but not how to site it. (It's proubably common knowledge and is only a minor fact, but if somebody could please site it that would be helpfull.)
- I've put the basic info into the para, surrounded by <ref></ref>. It's not a complete citation, but it's best to capture the basic information as soon as you can. Another editor can always clean up the citation style. Welcome to editing!LeadSongDog 16:48, 30 October 2007 (UTC)
There seem to be no sources to back up the casualties given. 2x4,500 versus 125,000 casualties also seems highly unlikely, US casualties were probably higher and German casualties lower. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 09:19, 12 April 2007 (UTC).
Note to any editors watching this page, though I doubt there are many. Please retain the books I've listed in the bibliography. I will come back to rewrite the article, but I feel that I need to gather more sources, particularly on the operations background. Skinny87 (talk) 20:09, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
No mention of Churchill's dismay?
Winston Churchill was very opposed to this operation and wished instead for the Allies to make landings in Greece and/or the Balkans (to prevent further Soviet influence) yet Roosevelt and Stalin had the final say. Shouldn't the article mention this briefly? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 13:56, 9 October 2011 (UTC)
