Welcome to the German 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 includes the military history of the modern state of Germany, as well as that of those historical states which may be reasonably considered "German" (such as Prussia and the principalities of the Holy Roman Empire).

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding German-task-force=yes or German=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:German 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.
