Movie Magic!

Here are a few of my favorite links, websites, and vendors for many of your reenacting needs. Sorry, but they're not listed in any particular order. When you visit, please tell them you heard about their website from ReproPaperwork.com!


Here's a very interesting webpage titled "Encoded Communications From Workd War II," sent to me by the Lexington Middle School History Club in Nebraska, sponsored by Ms. Michelle Green! A great article, with a number of very interesting links as well. Keep up the great work kids, and NEVER stop learning - Thank You Very Much For The Link!
An excellent site selling both original and reproduction World War II Eastern Front German, Finnish, and Russian equipment and uniforms. One of my favorites!
An excellent website with lots of information about getting started in World War II reenacting, links to reenacted units, paperwork, uniform info, et cetera, et cetera, ad infinitem. Easily one of the most informative sites out there!
M1940 DogTag Chains I would be severely remiss if I didn't include a link to Alex's site for repro US Dog Tag Chains. These are not the late-postwar bead chains, but the flat style issued to US forces with the tags held in place by a clasp. I've had mine for years and it's held up QUITE well, indeed!
The Art of War Jeff Willoughby, a fellow artist and reenactor, is recreating "skin" souvenirs of shot down aircraft. Apart from being very reasonable, his work is also really good! Check it out the next time you're looking for something to add to your collection!
Pobediteli Russian search engine (in English) for surviving Soviet veterans of the Great Patriotic War (World War II).
A good link with links to good articles on Italy during World War II.

French Départments Information about France's numerous Départments (kind of like counties in the US). Reminder: during World War II, the administrative regions as we know them today didn't exist, just the Départments.
French Départments More information about the French Départments. A lot of modern info, but still very useful.
The Victory Home A very useful online reference to the US Home Front during World War II. Well written and informative articles!
Veteran's History Project This is the US Library of Congress' site for collecting and cataloging all veteran's tales for posterity. If you can help in any way, please do so, since so many of our veterans and their experiences are being lost to us every day!

Third Reich in Ruins Okay, this site is just plain cool! Photos taken from the same or similar vantage points as photos taken back in the 1930s and 40s in Germany and Austria. I've spent HOURS at this website!
Through Their
Very interesting site with CDs of original photo albums for sale! Buying an original album can cost a small fortune, but Jim Payne provides great photographic resources for a very reasonable sum. Check his site out; you will not be disappointed!
Soldbuch.de Very informative site about the Soldbücher from the various armed services during World War II (in German).
USAAF in World War II Very extensive info site about the Army Air Forces during World War II.

The Federalist Papers A great reference for all Americans (and anyone interested in the US Constitution) courtesy of the University of Oklahoma College of Law. These were writings by Madison, Hamilton, and Jay under the collective nome de plume of "Publius" urging the thirteen new States to ratify the Constitution of the United States. To this day, a great study in public relations, and a fantastic reference to what the Founding Fathers really MEANT when they wrote the Constitution. Good reading!
Maritime Injury Center You may not be aware of it, but I am a USMC veteran, so I want to help veterans' assistance programs when I can. This is one such site, for those injured at sea or during military or merchant maritime operations. If you feel you may qualify for benefits under the Jones Act, please visit this website, and may God bless you for your service!
I Hate PCs Okay, this site is in no way whatsoever related to reenacting (though my friend Tom is a fellow reenactor), but have you ever wanted to take a sledgehammer and just beat the ever-loving "you know what" out of your computer? So has Tom... GREAT and hilarious reading!
