    Their "version" of Erika is hilarous.... They should really learn the German lyrics properly! *g*

    Here´s the original version...*cough*

    Erika



    I don´t know any Reenactors here, but I find it a little bit crazy, but in an neutral way (neither positive, nor negative). Could it be that´s it´s just a little bit "war gaming" for males who stayed "young" in some way?

    Sounds like an expensive hobby! Do you collect firearms from that time period?

    Not yet! I'm not old enough to. And yes it is very expensive, everything can add up to over $1000.

    Hi I do WW2 german, my unit is the 116 panzer.

    These are some places online that you can find gear to use at reenactments

    http://www.1944militaria.com/
    http://www.atthefront.com/
    http://www.greendevils.com/greendevi...varACTION=VIEW

    And this is a good site if you wanna learn even more about our hobby
    http://ww2reenactors.proboards35.com/index.cgi

    It can be somewhat expensive on some gear, but if you like history a whole lot it is worth it.

    Speaking of this, does reenactment typically include all nations in the war? (Japanese, British, Soviet etc?)

    To anser your question, there are german, american, polish, british, even some jap reenactors. But the american, german and british are the most common here in the states. If ya like ww2 history it really is fun getting out there in the gear and trying to act like they did in the war without getting hurt of course, that would not be fun!

    Its a good hobby and am happy for those that are able to do it. I wouldnt mind getting into it later on myself. But right now I build military models and dioramas concentrating on the Eastern Front, so thats about the extent of my WW2 reenacting.
