Welcome to the Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific 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.

Scope edit

The scope of this task force is to oversee the development and expansion of articles related to the military affairs of Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific, including those islands that fall outside the scope of the Southeast Asian military history task force. Military activities in and by Papua New Guinea fall under this task force. While titled "military history", the task force encompasses present-day military topics for all areas within its scope. The task force's area of interest overlaps with a number of other Wikiprojects, and as such issues, conflicts, requests for assistance, or announcements related to:

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding ANZSP-task-force=yes or ANZSP=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:Australia, New Zealand and South Pacific military history task force articles.
