Sir Anthony Van Dyck - Charles I (1600-49) - Google Art Project.jpg WPMILHIST brown caps.png

Welcome to the Wars of the Three Kingdoms 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.

ScopeEdit

This task force covers the period up to the start of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms (including, for example, the Personal Rule of King Charles I), the Wars themselves, the Interregnum, and the first few years of the Restoration. The task force also covers the biographies of anyone involved in the Wars and Interregnum, and articles on the history of those parts of the British Empire affected by the Wars and the foreign adventures of the English Commonwealth and Protectorate governments. It can be considered to be a subgroup of the Early Modern warfare task force, whose scope includes every such topic.

Any article related to this task force should be marked by adding Three-Kingdoms-task-force=yes 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:Wars of the Three Kingdoms task force articles.

  2. Inchiquin (talk · contribs) (Ireland, the British in Ireland. Planning on adding a section to the Second English Civil War article to link it more to Ireland. Also still hope to add more articles covering the largely forgotten battles fought in Ireland in this period, other related topics...)
  3. Jdorney (talk · contribs) (Interested in maintaining and improving the Irish articles. And to a lesser extent the English and Scottish ones.)
  4. PBS (talk · contribs) (Predominantly the English Civil War and English Interregnum)
  5. Sabrebd (talk · contribs) Will probably stick mainly to Scotland, but pretty much interested in all wars in all kingdoms.
  6. Harrias (talk · contribs): Mostly the battles and personnel relating to the south-west of England, but wider if the fancy takes me.
