Merge Royal Prussian Army of the Napoleonic Wars into this article[edit]

There is an article which was started about a year after this one called Royal Prussian Army of the Napoleonic Wars. It seems to me to be an article that has run out of steam. I have just been through it and cut and pasted the same text as was originally copied without attribution from the article Military mobilisation during the Hundred Days, to improve links citations etc.

If the text from Military mobilisation during the Hundred Days is stripped out, it seems to me, from a quick glance at the citations used in this article, that most of the rest of the text comes from this article. So as far as I can tell as most of the sections in the copied article are devoid of text, we may as well remove the content of the article Royal Prussian Army of the Napoleonic Wars and redirect it to the section in this article called Napoleonic era as currently the copied article is a content fork. If in the future the section "Napoleonic era" gets too large and needs to have a WP:Summary style article then it can be reverted back into an article and linked from the top of the "Napoleonic era" section.

As I am not an active editor on either article, I will leave the decision to someone who edits here on whether to redirect or not. The editor who originally spun off the article has been indefinably blocked, and the only other significant addition to the article was this edit by 79.47.50.164 but the additional text was not sourced. So I do not see the need for merge templates disfiguring this article. Be bold and see if anyone objects. -- PBS (talk) 00:41, 23 June 2010 (UTC)
