Club Motto: “This is the Great War, everybody dies.”
The Great War Historical Society: Honoring those who served in the First World War by re-living and re-enacting aspects of WWI. We are a group of WWI enthusiasts and re-enactors who recreate the life and times of the common soldier of WWI. Based mainly around the Los Angeles/Southern California area, we study and teach about the ‘War to End All Wars’ through public and school presentations, roundtable discussions and lectures, study groups, online research, and reenactments of trench warfare at our own fully developed battle site with trenches and “No Mans Land.” We strive to do it right which is part of the fun, while also being the challenge. Anything worth doing is worth doing right. We have been working hard for the last three years on our new battlefield, and we are pleased with what has come about so far. It is an ongoing process that we are looking forward to seeing what it can become.
If being in the trenches of a WWI battlefield seems appealing to you, we encourage you to contact one of the many different, authentic, and welcoming units in our club. They will be able to guide you in becoming a member of our exciting hobby. This is truly the “re-enactors re-enactment.”
