GA review (see here for criteria)
  1. It is reasonably well written.
    a (prose): b (MoS):
  2. It is factually accurate and verifiable.
    a (references): b (citations to reliable sources): c (OR):
  3. It is broad in its coverage.
    a (major aspects): b (focused):
  4. It follows the neutral point of view policy.
    Fair representation without bias:
  5. It is stable.
    No edit wars etc.:
  6. It is illustrated by images, where possible and appropriate.
    a (images are tagged and non-free images have fair use rationales): b (appropriate use with suitable captions):
  7. Overall:


  1. There are a number of disamb links that need looking at Brest, Charles Napier, Frederick Morgan, Hatchet man (not sure this should be a dismab page but we can look at that as well), Lucius Clay, OSS and Private
    • Corrected. (Changed Hatchet man to not be a disambig page)
  2. Public school means something different in the USA / UK should it be State school ?
    • Not sure. It was the name of the school.
  3. In the WWII Washington section Colonel Orlando Ward was given command of the 1st Armored Division and Smith became Secretary needs clarification did he become the Secretary of the General Staff ?
    • Yes. Corrected.
  4. At the end of the North African Theater section In October Smith traveled to Washington for two to represent Eisenhower does not make sense
    • Added missing word "weeks"
  5. There are a couple of blank images with just the px size in the medal lists.
    • You did that! A global change to replace dashes with mdashes broke the links. Restored.

  • Was it normal to not graduate and still be enrolled at University ?

I've put the article on hold for seven days to allow folks to address the issues I've brought up. Feel free to contact me on my talk page, or here with any concerns, and let me know one of those places when the issues have been addressed. If I may suggest that you strike out, check mark, or otherwise mark the items I've detailed, that will make it possible for me to see what's been addressed, and you can keep track of what's been done and what still needs to be worked on. A good read --Jim Sweeney (talk) 18:00, 23 September 2010 (UTC)
