Untitled[edit]

"The organiser of one protest newspaper was sent to prison for ten years for the alleged possession of marijuana." - Who? Where is proof?

"When, during one offensive, more bombs were dropped on Vietnam than were used during the whole of World War II (by both sides)," - Source needed.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 206.131.132.228 (talkcontribs).

"By both sides"--I caught that, too; as though WWII were a football game with only two "sides" involved. There is actually quite a bit of this article that is extremely problematic. Not the least are serious factual errors--I've seen the claim about Green Berets refusing to fight shot to pieces, as it were, and there have been some excellent books and academic articles demonstrating that the claim of a disproportionate number of African-Americans being sent to the front lines was an urban legend, at best. I'm tagging this for a complete rewrite, if I can find the tag for that (it's been a long time since I've needed it, which I suppose is a good thing). Heather (talk) 02:02, 20 September 2010 (UTC)

Completely re-wrote this article with many sources. Diamondgurl77 (talk) 02:23, 7 January 2013 (UTC)

WP:Military History Assessment Commentary[edit]

The article was assessed Start-class. The length and sources seem adequate, but there are problems with punctuation, wiki-format errors, and what appear to be major POV issues (See WP:NPOV). In-line citations should follow punctuation. (See WP:CITE, H:FOOT, and Template:Citation.) Movie and book titles should be in italics. Several of the linked articles lead to Disambiguation pages, like the term FTA, which should direct to F.T.A., or Salvador, which should lead to Salvador (film). Also, I was unclear of the "historical overview"; I assumed it was a discussion of historical context for the film, but reads like a continuation of the synopsis. For recommendations and policies on writing an article of a film, see Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Film. Good luck. Boneyard90 (talk) 03:58, 7 January 2013 (UTC)
