This article is the latest in a series which Peacemaker67 has worked on which cover (in his words) "short-lived non-German Waffen-SS divisions". The division was active between May and November 1944, and participated in several war crimes during this time. This is also 23 editor's first successful FA nomination, and we congratulate him on the achievement.
Another of Peacemaker's long-running series of high-quality articles on German units that saw combat in the Balkans during World War II, this article covers the history of a formation originally raised as a company and later expanded to a nominal division, while never being larger than a brigade.
This article continues Cdtew's series on North Carolina's Continental Army generals. Nash rose to the rank of brigadier general during the American Revolutionary War, and was fatally wounded during the Battle of Germantown in 1777. The modern city of Nashville and several other locations were named in his honour.
Described by Hawkeye as "maybe not as famous as Fermi", Niels Bohr received the 1922 Nobel Prize in Physics and contributed to the Manhattan Project after escaping from Nazi-occupied Europe. This is another in Hawkeye's series of articles related to the atomic bomb.
This article concentrates on Australia's heavy airlift unit, operating the biggest asset in the RAAF's inventory, the Boeing C-17 Globemaster III, which replaced the venerable Lockheed C-130 Hercules. In Ian's words, "the 'trashies' (trash haulers) may not have a particularly glamorous job, but they do have a vital and, I think, interesting one".
This article covers a large, but only partially successful, British carrier air strike on the German battleship Tirpitz during World War II. Nick redeveloped the article over many months, and it represents a significant change from his recent focus on Australian military aviation.

In the nomination statement Sturmvogel descried the subject of this article as being "one of the first Japanese light aircraft carriers and ... a textbook example of the Japanese habit of trying to cram a quart into a pint pot". After a troublesome early career in the 1930s, the carrier provided useful service during the invasion of China and the early months of the Pacific War, but was sunk in August 1942 during the Battle of the Eastern Solomons.
Another of Sturmvogel's series of articles on Japanese capital ships, this article covers the career of a battleship which had a "surprisingly uneventful history" until she was destroyed at her home port by an accidental magazine explosion in June 1943.
This article provides a detailed summary of the characteristics and careers of the dozens of light cruisers which were "built or projected by the German navies". The completion of this article was the second-last step in developing a featured topic on German light cruisers.

While mainly operated by the United States Marine Corps, small numbers of these aircraft are also flown by the Italian and Spanish navies.
