Using the classic skin, the image appears to the left of the battlebox rather than (as I presume is the intention) just below. I believe this is a known bug, but can be solved with a floatright table. I see the same problem occurs in Battle of Tinian. I'll edit here to show how it can be fixed, but please let me know if you object, or there is an approved format or something. -- ALoan (Talk) 11:15, 8 Nov 2004 (UTC)

Rename or dablink because of 1941[edit]

This article is about the battle of Guam in 1944. There was also a capture of Guam in 1941 by Japan. As far as I can tell, there is no article about that "Battle of Guam". (The names it might be given, ior that redirect to it, are Battle of Guam (1941) Japanese capture of Guam, Japanese invasion of Guam, Invasion of Guam (1941), Fall of Guam (1941), Japanese occupation of Guam, Capture of Guam (1941), Capture of Guam by Japan, Invasion of Guam by Japan, and others. The article Capture of Guam is about the American capture during the Spanish American War) I don't see any particular reason why an article on Japan's capture cannot exist. If there is an article about it, whether it is created in the future or already exists under some name I haven't thought of, this article would need a dablink at the top. If the article about the Japanese capture of Guam is given the name Battle of Guam (1941), it might be necessary to rename this article to Battle of Guam (1944).

One possible objection to renaming this would be if this Battle of Guam is considered "more significant" than the 1941 event. Miss Madeline | Talk to Madeline 23:14, 20 May 2007 (UTC)

Map of the Battle of Guam
A map (full view) showing the progression of the Second Battle of Guam (July 21 – August 10, 1944), in which the United States recaptured the Japanese-held island of Guam. The Japanese, who had taken the island almost three years earlier, saw more than 18,000 casualties during the campaign, most of whom were killed; the American forces took nearly 8,000 casualties, with over 1,700 killed. The first date of the battle is now celebrated as Liberation Day in Guam.Map: Grandiose
