Infobox edits[edit]

I changed the result parameter in the infobox. What do you guys think? I'm still questioning whether Nazi Germany should be listed as an Empire.. makes it more clean that way, though. KevinNinja (talk) 20:01, 21 March 2018 (UTC)

   Will it help you at all if someone translates "Deutsches Reich"?

Characterization of the unannounced attack[edit]

   My father was in midshipman school in Chicago that morning, and his preceding confidence that he was already on his way to war further belies any notion that (regardless of anyone's expectation of the niceties of formal declarations) eventual belligerant status for US was at all in doubt. And i've reworded another of the former expressions that suggested naivety abt the future was widespread. (By the way, the number of battleships at "Pearl" should be a reminder that "non-belligerent" is a legal status rather than a state of mind.) And i think i replaced a one-word profession of US innocence with that in mind; see the edit history, which is easier for most of you to do than for me.

Semi-protected edit request on 28 May 2018[edit]

In the fourth paragraph of the "Diplomatic background" subsection, I recommend changing "a elite force" to "an elite force". Z3a1 (talk) 20:21, 28 May 2018 (UTC)
