War Diaries Talk

Do I tag platoons, companies and other sub-units? [No thank you!]

  • lukesmith by lukesmith moderator

    We are interested in the story of units as a whole. If a sub unit are attacking, please tag this as a 'unit activity' (it was one) but there is no need to capture the name of the sub unit. We will have data from 1.5 million pages, so sub unit data would be too granular and dense.
