Talk:Battle of Abbeville
|This is the talk page for discussing improvements to the Battle of Abbeville article.
This is not a forum for general discussion of the article's subject.
I think the article is flawed, because the detail available about the BEF is much greater than that for the French and Germans; it's a constraint dictated by my sources and I'm not in a position to obtain the ones which would remedy it. MWAK has kindly added some details and citations and I've got a bit to add about RAF operations but Luftwaffe, armee de l'air and RN/Marine operations are missing. I'm not sure that all the stuff about BEF l-o-c and 2nd BEF is strictly necessary, either; until I hit an iceberg I was rewriting Operation Cycle simultaneously, where some of it belongs.

section 5th June : not the right Feuquieres village
Dear all, i noticed a small and totally minor error in name of a village in section "5th June" : sentence "The 4th Black Watch in reserve, were ordered forward to relieve Franleu but were stopped by German troops at Feuquières". The link to Feuquieres points to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feuqui%C3%A8res which corresponds to a village in Oise department and it's not the good village. The one you should refer to is "Feuquières en Vimeu" (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feuqui%C3%A8res-en-Vimeu) which is in Somme department, about 50 km north from the other village - most of the area you are mentioning in this article is the Vimeu, between Bresle and Somme rivers, west of Ponthieu (Abbeville).

(I found 1940 The Last Act: The Story of the British Forces in France after Dunkirk Karslake, Basil going cheap and hope to find a bit more about the French at least. Go Postie!)Keith-264 (talk) 17:11, 13 October 2015 (UTC)
