Welcome to the Military history WikiProject! We are a group of Wikipedia editors that work on topics related to military history, theory, and practice.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them on our discussion page, through our IRC channel (#wikipedia-en-milhist), or by contacting the project coordinators directly.

What do we do?

Our goal is to build the foremost free-content encyclopedia of military history in the English language by:

  • Creating, improving, and maintaining articles that describe all aspects of military history;
  • Providing guidelines and recommendations for editors of military history articles; and
  • Serving as the central point of discussion for all issues related to military history in Wikipedia.

Where are we going?

We are currently working towards four major milestones:

How can you help?

You don't have to join our project to work on military history articles. We welcome everyone who wants to help improve these topics, and encourage you—project member or not—to participate in all of our activities and take full advantage of the support we offer.

Our list of open tasks contains thousands of articles that need different types of improvement; please feel free to select something that interests you and start editing!

If you would like to advertise your participation, you can formally join the project by adding your name to the list of members, or by adding one of our userboxes to your user page.

How do we organize our work?

We have created four departments to organize different activities within the project:

We are also undertaking four special projects to reach specific article improvement goals:

  • Operation Brothers at War aims to bring all core topics related to the American Civil War to featured status in time for their 150th anniversary.
  • Operation Great War Centennial aims to bring all core topics related to World War I to featured status by the centenary of the war.
  • Operation Majestic Titan aims to create the largest featured topic on Wikipedia, covering every modern battleship ever planned or built.
  • Operation Normandy aims to bring all core topics related to the Battle of Normandy to featured status by its 70th anniversary.
