Welcome to the Napoleonic era task force, which covers the French Revolutionary and Napoleonic wars. 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 events of the French Revolutionary Wars and the Napoleonic Wars, corresponding to the period from c. 1792 to c. 1815.

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

A special project incubator covers the Waterloo Bicentennial articles. Please see this page if you'd like to sign up!
