Jump to navigation Jump to search


This infobox may be used to describe a particular planned or executed military operation or attack. For operations that resulted in combat, it can be used as an auxiliary template to the Template:Infobox military conflict, if necessary; for other types of operations, including those that were planned but never executed, it may be used alone. In the case of conflicts that consisted of multiple independent operations, multiple copies of the box may be used on a single article.
