Our Events

2019 Tobruk (41), Sicily (43)

The 2019 edition of Alcubierre was about the reenactment of the siege of Tobruk by the Afrika Korps in 1941 and held by the 8th Army and the 1943 Battle of Troina (Sicily).

The first took place in the Orwell trench system outside Alcubierre with the authorization of the town council. The second took place in Alcubierre itself.

Saturday was thus a great moment and then came Sunday with a downpour totally unexpected in August who forced us to cancel the events for that day.

The organization is very grateful to the participants who came and braved last minute problems with authorizations.


2018 Tobruk (41)

This is our first WW2 re-enactment after many years at Baldellou. The setting was the beautiful village of Torrebesses whose architecture reminiscent of Italy made it more than suitable to re-create operation Husky, the 1943 Sicily landings and liberation. Beautiful sunny weather and a record number of participant re-enactors helped making this edition a success as can be testified by the selection of photos enclosed. Lest we forget.


2017 NAPLES

The 2017 edition covered the Liberation of Naples in 1943 by the uprising of the population and by the allies. This time the backdrop was the village of Artesa de Lerida.  We are grateful for the participants, photographers that attended this re-enactment and the cook for such a wonderful dinner.


2016 – Salerno

The 2016 edition of our annual re-enactment covered Operation Avalanche , the invasion of mainland Italy by the allies in September 1943. Once again the village of Torrebesses was the setting. Unfortunately windy and rainy weather made this reenactment difficult , we are thankful to the participants who plodded on and performed so nicely as can see in  the photos enclosed.


2015 Husky

This is our first WW2 re-enactment after many years at Baldellou. The setting was the beautiful village of Torrebesses whose architecture reminiscent of Italy made it more than suitable to re-create operation Husky, the 1943 Sicily landings and liberation. Beautiful sunny weather and a record number of participant re-enactors helped making this edition a success as can be testified by the selection of photos enclosed. Lest we forget.
