WW2 Bookstore Main and National Customs

For the WW2 reenactor, there are MANY good books available on the 'Net. We have broken them down into topics as otherwise, this page would be intolerably long--actually, the pages still might be quite long, as there are a LOT of good books out there! Since I mostly reenact German, I admit that there is a bias in the books here, but I am working to change that, so bear with us and as time goes on, we will get more here. You can help by telling us what books we are missing.

Author: Scott Lee Thompson

This book takes the reader through a full-color look at reenactment of the German military of WWII. Dedicated reenactors have gone to amazing lengths to recreate the Wehrmacht in action. Original tanks and half tracks take to the field once more, alongside uniformed German soldiers. Everything from tanks to machine guns to can openers and cooking utensils is put to use to recreate not only authentic battles but also the more mundane aspects of wartime life, such as vehicle and weapons maintenance, sleeping, cooking, and trying to survive. The author has selected photos from WWII reenactments around the world, where reenectors have spent enormous amounts of time and money. Panzers thunder through the fields once more, planes of the Luftwaffe strike from the sky, and the German fighting men and women once more are thrown into an amazing array of scenarios.
