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.
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!

World War II Reenacting
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!
