Talk:Battle of La Malmaison

Greetings Blaylock, thanks for prompting me to look at Malmaison again, I thought I'd done the article ages ago. Lack of narrative sources in English has led me to adapt a translation of a French narrative in the Times Encyclopaedia from the 1920s and start translating the German narrative in the Official History User talk:Keith-264/sandbox2. If you have any recent sources in English I'd be glad to know of them. I hope to have the rest of the narrative copy-edited and uploaded this week. RegardsKeith-264 (talk) 08:31, 1 July 2014 (UTC)

I can dig out Hew Strachan, who might've mentioned it, but other than that & googling it, I've got no sources. Blaylockjam10 (talk) 09:11, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
Yeah, I know that feelin'. A source from 1918 and one from 1942 looks about as good as it gets. I'm about 1/2 way through machine translating the GOH narrative, which should help me drastically prune the background and prelude and add balance to the French narrative. (Is this period an interest of yours?) RegardsKeith-264 (talk) 09:22, 1 July 2014 (UTC)
My Strachan book was actually written in the 21st century, so age isn't a problem. I'm not sure how much he mentioned Malmaison though. Given it's influence on many of the major historical events after it, World War I is 1 of my primary interests. Blaylockjam10 (talk) 09:35, 1 July 2014 (UTC)


Added most of the narrative, will do a copy-edit tomorrow to tidy up and revise overlaps.Keith-264 (talk) 16:19, 7 July 2014 (UTC)
