Major Editing Required[edit]

This article discusses significant portions of the campaign surrounding the Battle of Ilerda, which I'm not sure is necessary. I think this article could benefit from a complete re-working that focuses solely on the battle itself, following the format of other battle articles. The primary source for this battle is Caesar's Bellum Civile, 1.43-46, which is referenced here, but I cannot think of other possible sources off the top of my head (although they may exist, e.g. Appian). A good starting point would be the passages cited, and I would encourage others to attempt a initial re-working of this article based on that text. Andersao (talk) 04:49, 23 December 2010 (UTC)
