New featured articles

Andrew Johnson (Wehwalt
Generally considered to be among the worst American presidents, Johnson's role in the US Civil War places him within the scope of this project.

New A-Class articles

Patton speaks to a group of wounded soldiers who are waiting to be evacuated.
Australian Army in World War II (Anotherclown, AustralianRupert, Hawkeye7 and Nick-D)
One of the few A-class articles to have been developed by more than two editors, this article describes the Australian Army's structure, equipment and campaigns during World War II. The section on the campaigns was adapted from the Military history of Australia during World War II article (an FA), and the remaining material was developed from scratch drawing on many sources.
George S. Patton slapping incidents (Ed!
In his nomination statement Ed! noted that this article provides "an interesting insight into military politics". It covers two controversial incidents in which the US Army general struck soldiers under his command, and the effect this had on his subsequent career and reputation. The article is a good example of how important parts of a topic can be developed into a high quality stand-alone article.
Hans Waldmann (fighter pilot) (MisterBee1966
This article covers the short life of a German fighter ace who was killed only a few weeks before the end of World War II in Europe. MisterBee noted that he consulted "most if not all of the publications available on Waldmann" when developing the article.
