Merge into Triple... Death[edit]

These pages highly duplicate. Joncnunn 20:42, 26 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Disagree. While there is some overlap, unavoidable as the Triple Entente and the Triple Alliance were at war with each other, the two topics are, and should remain, separate.--Anthony.bradbury 18:01, 3 July 2006 (UTC)

how many troops were involoveed in WW1

alot

The map is wrong[edit]

Greece was not part of the Central Powers! Can someone fix this? A.Cython (talk) 17:39, 5 May 2008 (UTC)

The map in its current state does not show Greece to be a part of the Central Powers. EasyPeasy21 (talk) 14:40, 5 July 2008 (UTC)
That is because I changed the map! the previous map was this one: [1] A.Cython (talk) 19:11, 31 July 2008 (UTC)

Mustafa Kemal[edit]

The list should only include a political leader, and a commander-in-chief, of a country fighting for the Central Powers. Mustafa Kemal was a very important figure during the Turkish War of Independence to the extent that he should be listed as a commander in the infobox of the Turkish War of Independence article, but he was not important enough in WW1 to warrant listing him alongside the sultan, and the commander-in-chief, of the Ottoman Empire in this article. As a result, I have removed Mustafa Kemal from the list. EasyPeasy21 (talk) 14:54, 5 July 2008 (UTC)

Zimmermann Telegram[edit]

If this article mentions alliances Germany tried to make with Afghanistan, then wouldn't it be also logical to include mentioning the Zimmermann Telegram, in which they tried to get Mexico to declare war on the USA? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 130.218.111.247 (talk) 22:11, 20 October 2009 (UTC)

Sultanate of Darfur[edit]

"For instance, when the sultan of Darfur, Ali Dinar (ca. 1898–1916), proclaimed his kingdom's allegiance to the Ottoman Empire, a small British force quickly defeated his forces, with the sultan dying during the fighting."

Maybe this should be added as a sub-bullet under the Ottoman Empire.--189.33.12.27 (talk) 21:09, 29 October 2009 (UTC)
