Welcome to the Dutch military history task force of the Military history WikiProject! 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.


The scope of this task force includes the military history of the modern state of the Netherlands, as well as that of those historical states which may be reasonably considered "Dutch" (such as the Dutch republic or the battles waged by various historical Dutch fiefs like the County of Holland) and battles fought by Dutch soldiers world-wide.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Dutch-task-force=yes or Dutch=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:Dutch military history task force articles.

This task force shares focus with the Netherlands WikiProject.


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.
