LHRA National Battle,
The LHRA invites you to our Western Front Tactical Battle to be held at Camp Atterbury, IN.,

Our goal is to provide an authentic WWII Battle reenactment event with the scenarios being played out in a European-like maneuver area. This is an opportunity to test your abilities against your opponents? using field skills and maneuvering. This event will be a 36 hr., Tactical Battle . Participants will not be required to participate in the total immersion if they choose not to. You will be expected to carry into the field all the gear, ammo and rations/water you need for the entire scenario. There will be NO organized break for lunch during the battles. Each unit will be assigned objectives and will be required to work with fellow units to attain them. This will be a fluid tactical event with orders subject to change dependent upon your actions and those of the enemy. Our number one goal is for everyone to enjoy themselves.
