Splitting the template?[edit]

Hi,

I just wondered, seeing as there are so many countries on the template, now might be the right time to consider splitting (or at any rate recategorising) the template?

Having the Soviet Union, China and North Korea mixed in with the US, Great Britain, Canada etc. is just confusing.

Likewise, though it is nice to be complete, are to links to Arkansas National Guard, Australian MIA lists etc. necessary a toolbar that covers only the essentials of the Korean War? Surely a new, new country-specific templates ("Australia in the Korean War" comprising the Australian participation Overview Article, Australian POWs and Australian MIAs for instance) would be the best idea for those countries with other articles currently in brackets?

Another issue is that the United States one only leads to an article about the airforce in the Korean war, considering there was more than just the airforce in the war this needs to be corrected. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.190.14.59 (talk) 22:21, 17 September 2012 (UTC)

Australia in the Korean War[edit]

Hi - I've created a new template for the Australian Korean Articles mentioned above. Please add to it, distribute it etc.
