I'm not sure it deserves a separate article on its own? Perhaps it should be just merged into Baltische Landeswehr, even though in theory the Iron Division/Freikorps in the Baltic were separate units, they were still commanded by the same guy Rüdiger von der Goltz.--Termer (talk) 02:25, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

I'd tend to agree with you, Termer, but the Baltikumer was a concept amongst German Freikorps-veterans. Furthermore, this article might be re-organised and expanded to include the Danish, Finnish, and Swedish involvement in Estonia, along with the abortive Vilnius Detachment raised from Scandinavian volunteers. —Zalktis (talk) 14:36, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
the Danish, Finnish, and Swedish also the British involvement in Estonia is included in Estonian War of Independence. I just put the merge templates up there for no to see what comes of it.--Termer (talk) 16:11, 18 October 2008 (UTC)

Quotes of atrocities in retreat section.[edit]

I've added a paragraph from a new book review which contains quotes of atrocities from a German officer, Erich Balla. I've put it after the first paragraph which quoted a fictionalised account {from someone who was actually there.} As the quotes from Balla are genuine, from a non-fiction as opposed to fiction book, should I swap the order round so the stuff I added comes above the fictional description?

Also, I found that Erich Balla {the source quoted in the book} has a German wiki page. And many people have an auto-translate button in their browsers now. But I looked at wiki and it said that to link you put [ [:country code:name] ], which I did, using de as country code [ [:de:Erich Balla] ]. {Though without a space between the two square brackets, obviously.}

However this displayed it on the page {with a sort of mauve coloured link} as de:Erich Balla. The link still worked, but it would have confused people reading it.

Is this meant to have been displayed in this manner?

Surely you should be able to get it to link without displaying the country code and colon {de:} in front of his name. Help appreciated. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ganpati23 (talkcontribs) 13:34, 18 August 2016 (UTC)
