Reenacting Poland 1939

I attended this morning a reenacting event in Madrid gathering several IIWW groups operating in our city. The main theme this morning was a recreation of the invasion of Poland in September 1939, although this afternoon it was planned a Normandy battle and the Varsovia uprising. A beautiful and sunny day after almost a week of heavy rians,  my young song Alex was me again (his second military-related event in a week) and had a great time.

A few photos of the battle between Polish and German troops...

The guy on the right is NOT a reenactor but a true paratrooper from the elite US 101 Airborne visiting Madrid...

... and now back to the  remaining renacting groups...


  1. Que bonito, y que bueno que tengamos este tipo de actividades. Además, un día muy soleado.

  2. Pues sí y el nivel alcanzado me ha sorprendido mucho

  3. Looks like a lot of fun. In one of your pictures it looks like a German section is guarding the little girl.

    1. Thnak you sir, not all mine but a significant number made by another club gaming mate

  5. El capitán de la 101 creo que estaba en representación de la embajada americana, al igual que el agregado militar de la embajada polaca y el cónsul en España de la misma, que participaron en un pequeño homenaje que se realizó a los caído.

  6. Would have been fun to be there. Thanks for the photos!
