the phrasing "The Falklands War in the 1980s had to end in June" has to be changed: according to whom did it have to end?


This article is so unreferenced that it is not even clear that the term is defined correctly in the article! On the face of it, Arctic Warfare would be a term used to describe warfare taking place in the Arctic, with a possible stretch to include the Antarctic. I could find no references to indicate that it applies to warfare in the cold.

It is untrue that the Germans had only one ski division and that the Soviets had several. The Germans had the 1st through6th Gebirgs Divsions, !st Ski Division, the 6th SS Gebirgsjaeger and 13th(?) SS Karstjaeger Division, as well as other divisions, trained in ski, snowshoe and mountain combat. The Soviets did not have a single dedicated ski or mountain division, although they did use ski troops. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:55, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Even if it did, India/Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yugoslavia certainly don't count. DJ Clayworth (talk) 19:56, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
