The Collings Foundation Hosts:
Battle for the Airfield
WWII Reenactment and Living History Weekend
October 10th and 11th
….An undercover French Resistance Fighter met with the Allied Forces and showed the exact coordinates of the German encampment. The night just before an elite German force over took a tiny grass airstrip just a couple of hundred feet away. The Allied Forces had to gain control of this airfield so they could fly in much-required supplies. – It was going to be a difficult fight.
How will the battle finish? Will the Allied troops be able to obtain control of the airfield and further their advancement? You will have to be here to discover out. The Collings Foundation will host a Living History event you will never overlook. You will be in a position to see original equipment from WWII in action. Every thing from the cooking utensils to M1 rifles is original. The only event of this type – in the world. – Don’t miss it!
