We are a non political Living History Society, we do not promote or support the Third Reich or Nazi ideology nor do we support revisionist, racist or extreme political views in any form.

W.A.R.S. Das Reich Re-enactment Society is formed by members who have a historical interest in the Axis Armed Forces of WWII and in particular the Waffen SS.

We will NOT tolerate any member who has extreme political views, nor do we wish to associate with any such persons or political groups.

W.A.R.S. Das Reich came into existence in the summer of 2002. Most of the core members of Das Reich are Re-enactment veterans with many years of experience and knowledge in the subject.

Das Reich, portray Grenadiers from the 2 Kompanie, Aufklärungabteilung (reconnaissance battalion) of the 2nd SS Panzergrenadier Division “Das Reich”.

Our impression has its historical time base in the Russian front campaigns and the Kursk offensive, operation "Citadel", during the summer of 1943

The W.A.R.S. Das Reich society has its membership capped to a maximum of 30 members.

We like and want to maintain a friendly atmosphere; it is a hobby after all and by keeping the membership at this level it gives everyone a “hands on” approach to the hobby.

Das Reich is the founding member group of W.A.R.S. WWII Axis Re-enactment Society, W.A.R.S. has grown and flourished in the past few years and now boasts eleven Axis, Historical groups in the family.
(See the W.A.R.S. topic for a complete list of member groups)

The society takes part in varied events throughout the year, usually one every 4-6 weeks. These take the form of private training sessions in the winter months. To public events such as 1940's weekends on preserved steam railway lines, major re enactment events such as War and Peace, Military Odyssey, Victory Show and many other fine re-enactment events in the summer months, throughout the United Kingdom.

We recruit nationwide and have members from overseas as well, our membership comes from a broad social background, but we have one thing in common our passion for military history.

If you feel you have the commitment to join Das Reich, take a look at our web site and do not be afraid to contact us.
(You must be at least 20 years old and physically fit, for a full view of our membership criteria see our web site)

I second that - I'm just sorry that as fascists we have to smash you ;-)

Seriously, a good bunch with an excellent turn out - and a sense of humour that sometimes is oh so lacking in this game!

Remember to drop by and say hello if you are attending "Operation Musketeer" at Renishaw, we will be having our own alternate evening entertainment, with Das Disco.

In the interests of spreading goodwill and comradeship all re enactors are invited to attend and have some fun, get to know us, we don't bite!

I have just learnt that Das Disco will not be able to perform at Renishaw Hall.

But still feel free to come and meet us (it is only a uniform) and say hello.
