I see no reason WP:MILMOS#INFOBOX to ignore the clear and specific infobox guidelines to avoid terms like decisive. Many battle are described as decisive in RS but there's often still a lot of nuance, which is precisely why the guideline is formatted in this way. In this case there is a single RS cited in the article that calls the battle decisive - that's nowhere near enough to justify ignoring the MOS.Unbh (talk) 10:56, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Slavish following of guidance that doesn't have strong consensus (it doesn't, I've been a coordinator of this project for a decade) is inappropriate. There is a good reliable source cited in the article supporting it being a decisive victory, and frankly, the facts of the operation make that conclusion unsurprising. Do not edit war to make the article the way you want it. Discuss it here and get a consensus for your clearly contested edit, the onus is always on the editor making the edit to justify it. Any further edit-warring on this will be reported, and you may be blocked as a result. Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 11:04, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I have now added several additional reliable sources for this description, and I strongly suggest you stop reverting. Thanks, Peacemaker67 (click to talk to me) 19:56, 21 June 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
