The Battle of Hürtgen Forest is the name given to the series of fierce battles fought between U.S. and German forces during World War II, which became the longest battle on German ground during the war and the longest single battle the U.S. Army has ever fought.
The Battle of Hürtgen Forest event combines the best of historical re-enacting and airsoft together. This will be an immersive event that will take a look back into the 1940s using authentic uniforms and equipment along with scenarios that will have a distinctly WWII feel.
Once the event begins, there will be no start and stops. Scenarios and objectives will overlap and run continuously throughout the day.
Visit our Facebook event page for rules and uniform/equipment requirements. If you do not have an authentic WWII uniform and gear, you may still participate under certain guidelines. These guidelines can be found on the event page.
Features of this event will include:
• Military style objectives such as the town of Schmidt, fuel dumps, and field headquarters.
• Minefields, both active and passive.
• Downed aircraft.
• Medics and field hospitals.
• Bunkers and foxholes.
