Description

World War II re-enactment plays an increasingly significant role in keeping alive the social and military history of the war years and it helps us all to remember the sacrifice and determination of a generation. Re-enactors regularly appear in television programmes, documentaries and films, as well as appearing at the increasing number of 1940s themed public events the length and breadth of the country. They spend a considerable amount of time researching the characters they portray, sourcing the correct uniforms and civilian dress and collecting ephemera of the period. The 1940s were pivotal in the history of the nation and even today, six decades or more later, the legacy of the music, dance, songs and fashion continues to inspire new generations. Mixing previously unpublished original period images with a selection of stunning colour images depicting the breadth of WW2 re-enactment, the reader will be fascinated by the characters, their individual stories, amazing experiences and their dedication. This truly is history brought to life!show more
