- This review is transcluded from Talk:German destroyer Z11 Bernd von Arnim/GA1. The edit link for this section can be used to add comments to the review.
Having read this very interesting article, I have the following points and questions:
1. Please provide a citation in "Design and description" for the length and weight statistics
- Cite #1 covers everything in the paragraph before it.
2. I'd prefer the career section to be subdivided into sub-sections for better structure
3. Need to clarify years: i.e., minefield in the Thames estuary in November 1939; Operation Weserübung in April 1940
4. "The ships exchanged fire without effect until Hipper was spotted an hour later and sank Glowworm shortly afterward" is ambiguous and needs to be reworded. Did Hipper or von Arnim sink Glowworm?
5. Tell us a bit about Commander Bey. Was he on von Armin or another ship?
- Another ship. If von Arnim had been his flagship, it would have been mentioned.
6. The article ends rather abruptly and needs a brief epilogue to round things off. What happened to the wreck and was any salvage attempted? What became of the captain and crew?
- Done. Nothing known about any salvage.
I've checked the article against standard B-class criteria to understand its current status and it would be C-class given the points raised above:
1. It is suitably referenced and all major points have appropriate inline citations.
2. It reasonably covers the topic and does not contain major omissions or inaccuracies.
3. It has a defined structure, including a lead section and one or more sections of content.
4. It is free from major grammatical errors.
5. It contains appropriate supporting materials, such as an infobox, images or diagrams.
6. It is fully and correctly categorised and carries all appropriate templates.
Re criterion 6, I haven't studied the categories and templates yet as I need to compare with other similar articles.
If you can address the points made, I will do a final review against the GA criteria. It is close to the standard already and should not need much extra effort to get there. It is a very interesting and certainly well-written account. I won't put it on hold just yet. --Mykleavens (talk) 19:53, 30 May 2011 (UTC)

A very concise and informative account. I can't see that the article will expand much or that there is scope for further improvement. It has reached GA very easily and I was struggling to find ways by which I could help you to improve it. I see you've written a number of these pieces and, as I'm always looking for material about WWII, I'll be reading those too. Well done. --Mykleavens (talk) 15:03, 1 June 2011 (UTC)
