O.K., thanks for the explanations, Kepi.

I wasn't aware of the rules that govern reenacting. I thought there is more initiative left to the participants, similarily to 'war games' armies regularily perform.

Denes,

What your were thinking of is what is called a private tactical where both sides have an objective with a point value added to them. At the end of the day both sides have their points added up to see who the victor is. Our events take place in a trench system reflecting the Western Front of 1918 and having to conduct assualts by going "Over the Top" or through trench raids for intellignece, capturing a section of trench, etc.

Kepi is talking about what is called a living history/public tactical event in which the participants are given information like a movie script telling them area of participation, how many to die here, who gets wounded there, where the explosives are located and times to go off, etc. to ensure a that the public see's a good battle and the safety of the reenactors is maximized

Not Romanian but AEF. Here is a link to some pics taken by the 80th Division at the annual fall event held in Newville, PA by the Great War Association. Actually had planes come out and will be back in April which I plan to attend.
