Merger Proposal[edit]

The name of this article has been changed a number of times but always apparently in a way that does not conform to common uses in English-language historiography. "Expedition of 1799" and "Expedition to Holland" are far too vague. The monikers commonly used are "Anglo-Russian Invasion of Holland" and "Anglo-Russian Expedition to Holland" and in older cases also the "Helder Expedition". For that reason, when I was asked to hive off the section "Anglo-Russian Expedition to Holland" in Batavian Republic in the course of qualification for GA-satus, I didn't find an existing article in wikipedia, simply because the current article has an unusual name. I have meanwhile written a new article with the title Anglo-Russian Invasion of Holland. That covers the same subject, but in a far more comprehensive way, as a comparison of the two articles will learn. I therefore propose that the two articles should be merged.--Ereunetes (talk) 22:09, 7 May 2009 (UTC)
