Welcome to the war films task force, a joint venture of the Film and Military history WikiProjects. If you have any questions about articles or are generally seeking advice, you're encouraged to ask at the main military history talk page, or you can directly approach one of the task force participants below.

The coordinators of the Military history WikiProject can be contacted here.


This task force covers all war films, which is to say all films concerned with historical warfare. This includes both films that depict actual events in military history (whether accurately or otherwise), as well as films that focus on fictional events but depict actual historical militaries or for which a discussion of real military influence is applicable; see WP:MILHIST#SCOPE for more details.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding both parameters to the project banners at the top of its talk page:

This will automatically place it into Category:War films task force articles.
