Created page[edit]

I have created this page since I noticed that a lot of links throughout the military history pages link to Stephen Turnbull, who is a footballer. Links will have to be corrected.Gwinva 08:48, 21 February 2007 (UTC)

I moved the footballer page to Stephen Turnbull (footballer) and added the disambigulation page last night, also I fixed ALL of the links. 17:37, 15 May 2007 (UTC)

Utter Rubbish[edit]

Perhaps it should be remarked somewhere on the page that Turnbull is a complete incompetent when it comes to his writing, who consistently perpetuates such myths as the 30-pound longsword, the 'pound on the enemy with sledgehammer blows' and so on and so forth, as well as praising the katana to the skies, making it out to be a magical lightsaber that flew to the moon to pick up cheese every night, so that its master could have a proper breakfast in the morning. His work is, at the very best, sloppy, and at the worst, that of a katana fanboy who perpetuates myths about the europan swordsman and his blade, in order to push the japanese counterparts to the skies with absolutely no basis. 85.229.49.69 (talk) 16:42, 19 October 2014 (UTC)
