The 21st Infaterie Division was a German military unit which fought during World War II.
Mobilised in the 1st wave in 1939, the division took part in the German invasion of Poland and the following year's invasion of France. For the next four years, it fought on the Eastern Front, largely as part of Army Group North, assigned to Eighteenth Arm which was a part of the Army Group North until early 1945.
The impression is based upon a late war 1944-1945 German Infantry division "the 21.Infanterie division" who fought on the eastern front during WW2.
Our impression and historical study is based around the extensive battles in baltic regions and the battle for East prussia 1944-1945.
We are constantly expanding our membership, and are always on the lookout for new recruits or experienced reenactors. Our members are located from all over the UK.
The 21.Infanterie division Living History society not only attend public events and private battles through the year we are fortunate enough to have our home just on the outskirts of London in Bushey, Hertfordshire at the site of the WW2 operational HQ of the USAAF 8th Fighter Command.
The 1940's experience museum is a unique WW2 living history attraction which is opened to the public on the last Saturday of each month and we have the use of this centre for training, photos, filming AGM's etc. as and when we need it by kind permission by the centre management.

Note-The 21st Infantry Division Eastern Front Living History Group portrays members of the Wehrmacht & Soviet Red Army from WW2, and does so in the interest of historical reality and inclusion, rather than for any political motivation or cause. We are Historians first and foremost, and focused only on providing as realistic an approach to studying the conflict as possible. The 21st Infantry Division Eastern Front Living History Group respectfully requests any neo-Nazi/extremist groups to please look elsewhere for an audience, as we are NOT interested.
