Welcome to the Military historiography 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 topics related to military historiography; its primary work is concentrated on military historians and their theories and works.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Historiography-task-force=yes or Historiography=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:Military historiography task force articles.
