wikipedia plagiarism

My friends at Wikipedia have decided to include parts of my work on their T-34 page.

However instead of mentioning my site they copied the AFV strength statistics from my piece Tank strength and losses – Eastern Front and just state ‘Velikaya Otechestvennaya Voina 1941-45. Dejstvuyushchaya Armiya’ and ‘Jentz, Thomas L. Panzertruppen: The Complete Guide to the Creation and Combat Employment of Germany's Tank Force, 1933-1942

The person who copied the statistics obviously didn’t understand that the German figures are based on several books, not only Jentz’s and in some cases are basically my guesstimates.

I left a message at the talk page and will wait to see if they do something about this!
