edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Eastern Front (World War II):

Short mentioning of fear of the German people of Soviets due to propaganda and real atrocities e.g. Nemmersdorf massacre which caused even mass suicide and caused the German military to fight the Soviet to the end and surrender to the other Allies (should probably have a hotlink to unconditional surrender somewhere in there).

Give a sourced overview on casualties counts.

Wartime economies, military production, Soviet industrial evacuation/relocation

Preserving here by providing this link. My rationale was: "remove campaign names cited to what appear to be personal websites - three are sufficient; rm excessive template "Culture of the Soviet Union". --K.e.coffman (talk) 00:59, 7 June 2018 (UTC)

Image replaced[edit]

I replaced the map that presented a pre-Barbarossa situation in a very misleading way: according to the old map, RSFSR occupied Ukraine and Bielorussia, which was not the case. It also created an impression that Germany occupied Hungary, Slovakia or Bulgaria. I concede the previous map was technically perfect, but it was deeply misleading, so it should be replaced with a more adequate map. In few days, I'll edit the current map and replace German names and a legend with English names. I'll probably add a note that the Baltic states and Bessarabia were annexed.--Paul Siebert (talk) 05:19, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

"Decisive" victory[edit]

I'm not actually thinking of MILMOS per se, but Template:Infobox_military_conflict/doc: "Do not introduce non-standard terms like "decisive", "marginal" or "tactical", or contradictory statements like "decisive tactical victory but strategic defeat".

On the other hand I'm pretty ambivalent about this rule so maybe I'll leave it be. Pinkbeast (talk) 17:51, 6 October 2018 (UTC)

That is a rare case when the hostilities went so far, and the whole destruction of German statehood was so dramatic that there was a need to introduce the terms "debellatio" and "occupatio sui generis". I think "decisive" is quite relevant here.--Paul Siebert (talk) 19:03, 28 October 2018 (UTC)


I see some IP continues disruptive editing. Maybe, it makes sense to request semiprotection?--Paul Siebert (talk) 19:03, 28 October 2018 (UTC)
