About the Book
Aufklärungsgruppe auf dem Vormarsch!
Our unit strives to portray as accurately as possible rifle men of the Aufklärungs Abteilung (Reconnaissance Battalion) within the elite Großdeutschland Division that mainly saw active service on the Russian Front during World War II.
Our members have many reasons for joining the group. Some have a keen historical interest in WWII, some have interest in the weapons and tactics used, others join for the ‘Kameradschaft’, but the main aim is to share knowledge and research about the conflict and the soldiers that fought in it. We also attempt to set high standards in all areas our portrayal - from uniforms and equipment to our living history displays and battle re-enactment's.
This book features over100 images spread over 80 pages of our re-enactment group in action and illustrates our photographic output from the 2012 campaign.
