I copied the information in the section on the Arctic Convoys into an article of the same name on 19th because an article of that name was needed and as a experiment to see what would happen. Since that has been done the article has been expanded and some of the initial information has been amended. I would suggest that it would be useful to remove...
The way this article is currently organized is rather confusing. I would suggest putting it into a more chronological order then the current grouping, as it, IMO, would flow better. For example: The Norwegian Campaign was cut short by the invasion of France. The fall of France, making all French colonies neutral, is what gave Italy the incentive to...
The page state that the British army was smaller than the German army at the start of the conflict which strictly speaking is true, but the Imperial army (especially the Indian Army which was the biggest in the world) when added to those numbers changed the equation. The same could be said of the French colonial army (specifically the Senialese). S...
The sentence "The British ironically benefited from the attacks on American coastal shipping as a large decrease in attacks on Atlantic convoy ships occurred." is dubious. Given that Britain was almost entirely dependent upon seaborne cargo for survival, how could the massive sinkings off the US coast be anything but disastrous? The reason the U-bo...

Shame On You00:18, 26 November 2006 (UTC) 1. In English we normally call countries "she" and "her". England, Britain and the Empire are all feminine. We're a Kingdom whether or not we ...
The reason I gave it a "Start" assessment is that it is lacking references, is a a bit long and could use a few more pictures.--Looper592018:46, 7 December 2006 (UTC)
Some summary statistics would be good, such as the overall number of combatants and casualties, with a breakdown of the main services. --Epipelagic (talk) 06:56, 25 April 2013 (UTC)
This article is surprisingly biased in favour of Britain against India.What needs to be added those are- British declared war on Germany on behalf of India without consulting with Indian leaders, resulted in their resignation.Quit India movementBengal Famine of 1942.Only Japanese did not fight in Kohima, Manipur? Indian national army also fought, a...
This article is excessively long due to the amount of sub-sections. One example is the Battle of France and Fall of France sections. These are exactly the same topic so I am going to join them up. Would anyone else support merging more sub-sections to give the article a better layout? P.S Look at the Military history of the United States during Wor...
