The 916. Grenadier Regiment is a 're-created' living history unit based on the actual unit that fought with distinction in North West Europe between 1944 and 1945, therefore, we owe it to those men of both sides to portray them correctly and with respect - lest we forget.
The unit was formed way back in 1978 by enthusiasts and collectors and was then called 'Stürmgruppe Adler'- a fictitious unit. Later, we adopted an actual German Unit identity and today the unit has a long and proud history as one of the premier WWII German Infantry Units in the world.
The unit is made up of a group of dedicated individuals with an interest in the WWII German Army, but without any sympathy for the Third Reich or its ideals. Our aim is to honour the ordinary infantry soldier of all nations.
