22-24 May 2020, Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive - 1915, Bardwell, KY

Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive - 1915

Public · Hosted by Hans Kaufmann

3 Dates · May 22, 2020 - May 24, 2020
MA
Bardwell, Kentucky

Back ground: The Gorlice–Tarnów Offensive during World War I was initially conceived as a minor German offensive to relieve Russian pressure on the Austro-Hungarians to their south on the Eastern Front, but resulted in the Central Powers' chief offensive effort of 1915, causing the total collapse of the Russian lines and their retreat far into Russia. The continued series of actions lasted the majority of the campaigning season for 1915, starting in early May and only ending due to bad weather in October.

Actual Event: The event will be hosted at a Great War Reenacting League endorsed site on May 22nd to May 24th 2020. It will be a private tactical event that will allow Austro-Hungarian, German, and Russian reenactors to clash in a 1915 setting. It will be semi-scripted.

Flea Market: on Friday the 22nd, from 1pm-4pm, we would like to encourage people to set up for a flea market. All WW1 and victorian related items will be welcomed!
