We have a spiffy "Welcome Area" here on reenactor.Net. It will show you how to get around and do some of the things we've found need a little explaining... to visit our Welcome Area, go here: http://www.reenactor.net/new_area/welcome_message.html
Great War Links from Around the WorldThis 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These links are somewhat out of date and really, we're about reenacting, not covering the history of the War.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!

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!!
