Great War Links from Around the World

This page contains links to many good sites that we find relevant on the 'Net. They are in no particular order, but look for us to have more quality links soon, and if you have a cool link related to WWI or German stuff that you'd like to see here, please contact e-mail me Marsh Wise.

These links are somewhat out of date and really, we're about reenacting, not covering the history of the War. I can think of no better place to find good Great War links than at the The Western Front Association's links page (I know, what a sod I am...) These folks have done an awesome job and have a very professional website. Please give them a look!

Neat Stuff

6000 Volkslieder: German and other Folksongs. Frank Petersohn's EXCELLENT web page--he has zillions of German folk songs and marching songs, not only the lyrics, but in many cases, there are MIDI files to go along with them. 97% of all the song stuff on this site comes from Frank's site--he graciously allows me to use these songs. One of the nicest people you will find on the net, Frank does not limit his page to only German songs either, there are folksongs and national anthems from around the world here. For sure, check it out!!

Marsh's favourite beer (so he insists on this link): Budvar Budweiser!--The TRUE King of Beers! Unfortunately, Budvar is not available in the United States due to a bunch of legal chicanery (Boo! Hiss!). Some day, some way though, we will see Budvar here... Anyway, check them out!

Vermissten und Toten Datenbank - A very "dark" but interesting web site. This site in German and is linked to databases that have all of the German casualties of World War I and II.
http://www.volksbund.de/VuTDB/vut_suche.asp

Skat--A site that contains a shareware version of the popular German card game, Skat. It's not the easiest game to figure out but if you are truly a "Hun" then the challenge of learning and playing the game will be perfect for you. This was very popular with the Soldaten.
http://jwsell.wooster.edu/Skat/Skatdflt1.html

If you would like to have a link to your web page here, please first visit our "Wanna Link?" page, add the code you find there and then e-mail me with your URL. I will check it out and see if it fits with our topics.

World War I Reenactor's Morsels of Authenticity

What, you may be asking is a "Morsel of Authenticity"? Well, it simply is a term Marsh came up with to mean a short article on some reenacting subject. As time goes by, we hope to add more and more of these articles. In fact, right now, this is the only Morsel page working on reenactor.Net! Right now, we have five good articles for your information.

NOW, before someone starts to spaz, the reason these articles are all GERMAN-related is because that is what was sent it or found. If you have a good article about some ALLIED subject, well... SEND IT IN!
