(http://www.reenactor.net/ww2/axis/images/17-lfd_bnnr.jpg)What can I say? Another German unit?? Well, for one thing, we NEED Axis units as there are too many allied units (the good ole Band of Brothers syndrome at work). It's going to be a Luftwaffe Field Divison unit, actually, somewhat generic in that we will be able to be on both fronts (OstFront events being much more fun!). If we have to be nailed down, I'd say 17. Luftwaffe Field Divison, but ONLY if nailed down.
Why Luftwaffe Field Divison?
Well, for one thing, it's good for older guys or those not so in shape. Second, they wern't at all uniform. Okay a bit more so on the OstFront than on the West, but really, at late-War events, a serious mixture of Heer and Luftwaffe kit can be worn.
Why Join THIS unit?
Foremost because we're out to have fun. Oh, I know they all say that, but really... I am as eaten-up by authenticity as the next guy, however, I realize that we all have to go to WORK on Monday, that we all have real lives, that this is a H_O_B_B_Y and is meant to be fun! If you're miserable,you're doing something wrong. And yeah, you can "be there" w/ out being miserable.
Great, we'll have a website up this week or so :) In the meantime, feel free to PM me about the unit.
