Can PQ17 be classed as the Atlantic Campaign ? --Jim Sweeney (talk) 11:19, 2 September 2009 (UTC)

Not really; about half of the stuff here wasn't part of the Atlantic campaign, and a lot of stuff that was isn't here. I came here to offer to fix it, but if you are planning to do it, that's OK. Xyl 54 (talk) 04:02, 29 September 2009 (UTC)
I'd agree, no. I've always considered the PQ convoys separate. Also, everything I've read treats the two separately (except WP, it seems :/). TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 23:09, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Scope[edit]

Does anyone have any thoughts about the scope of this template? Would anyone else see the Atlantic campaign as being different to the Battle of the Atlantic?
The phrase was Churchill's, and he was referring specifically to the assault on Britain’s supply line (ie the north Atlantic route, and the route from Gibraltar and West Africa/Freetown). His phrase probably wouldn’t include the operations against the Vichy fleet or Dakar, or Operation Torch, or the USN’s mid-Atlantic route to the Mediterranean theatre; and it wouldn’t include the invasion of Norway or the Axis efforts to run the Allied blockade. All of those would be part of an "Atlantic campaign", and the BotA would be another part (albeit a pretty big part) also.
Any thoughts? Xyl 54 (talk) 23:13, 11 April 2011 (UTC)

Perhaps the name is wrong and it should be something like "World War II in the Atlantic" rather than make a campaign out of a lot of less related things that happened?GraemeLeggett (talk) 07:18, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Happy Time[edit]

The Second Happy Time is listed in this box, shouldn't the first one be there too? --Bcp67 (talk) 19:32, 9 January 2013 (UTC)

New Campaignbox![edit]

Hello all! I've made Template:Campaignbox Arctic Naval Operations of WWII, which I think will make the Arctic operations much easier to navigate. I've taken the liberty of removing the overlap from this box, and replacing it with the more specific campaignbox where appropriate. To be exact, I'm going to remove PQ-17, Battle of the Barents Sea and Battle of the North Cape from this Campaignbox, remove this campaignbox from the respective articles, and then add the new campaignbox. Feel free to revert if it's a problem. Howicus (talk) 23:17, 27 July 2013 (UTC)
