Sentence[edit]

The interrogation of German prisoners indicated that uranium and thorium were being processed in It was discovered that most of the output was sent to the Auergesellschaft
This first sentence seems to be broken. Someone shoudl fix it. StoneProphet (talk) 21:35, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

  • Fixed. Thatnks for that. Hawkeye7 (talk) 22:40, 29 February 2012 (UTC)

Groves memoir 'Now it can be Told' is not a reliable source and is heavily biased against the European scientists and in particular the French, so the comment that Joliot was not fully behind the Allied mission is an aspersion cast by Groves and not in any way factual and should be removed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 110.174.83.95 (talk) 01:15, 27 July 2012 (UTC)

Fall of Rome[edit]

Illusory: Based on illusion; not real. The fall of Rome was real just delayed until 4 June 1944; it was therefore elusive. No edit waring please!128.170.224.12 (talk) 22:41, 16 July 2013 (UTC)

Gen'l Smith[edit]

Hello, Hawkeye7, when I added the link I kept the title of the article ("Walter Bedell Smith") because he was usually known by the name 'Bedell Smith', but no big deal. I'll redo the link but keep his name as you have it. Tomseattle (talk) 11:28, 27 January 2018 (UTC)
