A couple weeks ago I attended “The Liberation of New Oxford” in New Oxford, PA. For this WWII event, the small town dresses itself up as a wartime French village. Locals and visitors alike gather in the town square as an invading force of Germans eventually arrives and takes over the town. Almost immediately they start getting pushback from local resistance groups, and eventually a large force of Americans arrives and helps overthrow the German occupation of the town. This was my first time attending the event and I was impressed by how well it was done. Huge numbers of reenactors, multiple fly-bys of a C-47 that was “dropping paratroopers”, well over a dozen vehicles, and the whole thing was generally well-orchestrated. I would highly recommend the event.
Next year I will take a different, less centralized position for my photos (perhaps even joining in with the French Resistance unit I belong to that attended the event), but I am still really happy with what I got this year. I hope that you enjoy them! As always, just click the image to see a larger version.
