Group Spotlight

The Netherlands 1940-1945 is an impressive Netherlands-based WW2 group. Equally impressive is the website.

While other WW2 groups are militarily-oriented with civilian elements attached as a side item, The Netherlands group is the opposite. Its mission is primarily civilian with some military accents thrown as needed. This is a refreshing twist to the usual reenacting group formula. In their introduction they state:

We try to act out our WW2 persona as accurate as possible.We wear vintage clothing, we talk and act as people did back then and by carrying 1940's items with us we hope we can show the public a bit more about life in wartorn Holland.

This is a site to definitely bookmark and refer back to frequently.
