Welcome to the Asian military history task force. 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 the military histories of all Asian states, as well as military activity in Asia by non-Asian powers. The military activities of the Ottoman Empire, Turkey, Russia and the Soviet Union all fall under both this task force and the European task force.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Asian-task-force=yes or Asian=y to the {{WPMILHIST}} project banner at the top of its talk page (see the project banner instructions for more details on the exact syntax). This will automatically place it into Category:Asian military history task force articles.


If you approach anyone from this list for advice or help, please check their contributions first to check if they've edited recently. This list may contain people who have not edited Wikipedia in a long time.
