 WW2 Reenacting Organizations

 

On this page, you will find a list of the many WWII "parent" organizations. These are the overall organizations that put on events and that most Units/clubs belong to. If you don't already have a unit or are looking to join, it is a good idea to find one of these organizations in your area and contact them -- they can then help you find a good unit and get started.

 

To add your unit link, please go to our link-add page.

If you find a problem in this time/area or would like your unit listed please feel free to e-mail the WW2 T/A webmasters: Harry Coombs.

WWII "Morsels of Authenticity"

What in Sam Hill, you're thinking, is a "Morsel of Authenticity?" well, it's simple, they are short articles dealing with a subject, any subject, that will help a reenactor improve his/her impression. Right now, we only have some German articles, but soon, very soon (yeah right, Marsh) we hope to have some good Soviet articles and more! Keep looking!

If you find a problem in this time/area or would like your unit listed please feel free to e-mail the WW2 T/A webmasters: Harry Coombs or Rob Haught.

WWII Articles & Stuff

  • Morsels of Authenticity: Articles and details to help with building a great impression. [Finally I got off my butt and had some time to start this!!!] If you have an article to help others, anything at all, please send it in! We know there is good stuff out there!
  • After Action Reports: Some older After action reports. I hope to have some new ones here soon--these were done in the "pre-Marsh" days--so a long time ago now. Need more!
  • On Reenacting Axis Troops: Here is an article for those shallow people who simply cannot understand why anyone would want to reenact Axis troops, much less be allowed to.
  • Definition of a FARB!: This is a couple of short essays on just what a Farb is. See if you don't agree (of course, if you're offended, send me an e-mail)
  • Appearance Standards for WWII Reenactors: Here is an article which is SURE to either please or offend!
  • German Rank and how to recognize it: Hey Kinder, now you can look at a German reenactor and not just wonder what all them "shiney doo-dads" are.
  • Too many little groups?: Article by Larry Mayo on the need to halt the proliferation of new reenacting groups.
  • Something else to Avoid: A very negative article about some SS reenactors in England. It shows what happens when guys with little or no common sense, are allowed to a: reenact WWII and b: talk with the press.Mississippi State University WWII Archives

Pictures on this page were gestolen from the 7./ G.R. Grossdeutschland's Websites ? Danke Schön!

World War II Reenacting

1uidnew_ww2_main

Reenacting WWII has come a long way since its origins in 1975. Back then, it wasn't "cool" to cut your hair short or even to wear military uniforms. However, there were groups of guys who wanted to understand what it was actually like, to really be in WWII. They rejected the "Hogan's Heroes" view of the war -- instead, doing research, interviewing veteran's -- it was a hard row to hoe and there were many pitfalls and false starts.

Now, almost 30 years later, WWII is going well and strong, gaining momentum every event. Unlike Civil War or Rev War, WWII is not done for the crowds, so there isn't this "built-in" base of people who know about it, AND... we have to pay our own way, we don't get free food, ammo and t-shirts nor are we paid to come to events -- there is no large spectator base to pay for this. We have to pay our own way, but then again, we are free to do it OUR way!


Now THIS is a great WWII Video! Sure you don't wanna, maybe do WWII?
(If you've got a great WWII reenactment video you've done, why not let us know... YouTube... a great resource for all of us!)
WWII Articles stuff has been separated into a new page, also appearing in the menu bar!
