Slaughterhouse[edit]

yes I have, the Army is on page 317...but I just added it without looking (copy and paste) with all the other stuff. Its not very good--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 07:48, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

OOB formatting[edit]

I'm not sure why you did that, but the standard way to present an OOB, which is what this is, is in a table format. Eventually the subunits and COs will be added, and this is best done in the table format. In fact this is how it is presented everywhere else in Wikipedia--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 11:41, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Er, no. When I ran through 51st Army (Soviet Union) to A-class status I had to change it to text, and one of the recommendation to fix 5th Army (Soviet Union) to A-class was that as well I think; anyway, that's how I did it following the recommendation for the 51 Army. If it's got a heading immediately over it, it looks better, but 'Includes:...' is not a style that gets articles promoted; strictly a temporary arrangement.

Well, this is not ready for the pretty table of the A-class article, so I hadn't done one. I guess there is no restriction in having a table OOB in the class it is in now, is there?--mrg3105 (comms) ♠♣ 12:10, 28 April 2008 (UTC)

Siege of Leningrad[edit]

During theSiege of Leningrad the Finnish forces were stopped by the 23rd Army under Marshal Govorov as they crossed the old Soviet-Finnish border on the Karelian Isthmus. The Finnish attacks repeated several times during September-December of 1941 upon German pleas for attacks on Leningrad. This caused Britain to declare war on Finland on December 6, 1941.[1] The Finns temporarily took, but failed to keep Beloostrov.

The Finnish order of battle involved I Corps (2 infantry divisions), II Corps (2 inf divisions) and IV Corps (3 inf divisions) - all were stopped in the northern suburbs of Leningrad by the 23rd Army.

Sources? If Mannerheim gave order to stop offensive on the certain line days before the line was reached, it is not suitable to say that 23rd stopped the Finns on that line. --Whiskey (talk) 10:17, 4 February 2009 (UTC)
