The American Heritage Museum wishes to thank ALL of our visitors to the 2021 Battle for the Airfield World War II Re-Enactment weekend for experiencing a fantastic weekend of living history with us here in Hudson/Stow, MA! It was one of the best event weekends we have had and we thank everyone for making it a safe and fun event after a challenging year for all of us.A special thank you goes out to our volunteer re-enactors from all over the region who share their time, collections, and knowledge with all of us. Their passion for keeping history alive is clearly evident through their dedication to accurately portraying veterans from World War II on both the Allied and Axis sides. Without their help, the Battle for the Airfield truly would not be possible. And last, but certainly not least, a well deserved thank you goes out to the volunteers and staff of the American Heritage Museum. Their tireless support in planning, setting up, staffing, and cleaning up after all of our special event weekends each season is truly incredible. Thank you for your dedication to our mission and being here to answer the call. Just like a tank cannot fight without the crew; the museum could not operate without our volunteers... We look forward to a wonderful 2022 season next year with lots of amazing special events here at the American Heritage Museum - we hope to see you ALL here again soon!Photos by John Collins. ...

Battle for Berlin


IS-2 Iosef Stalin
– RUS | TANK

SU-100 – RUS | TANK DESTROYER

Messerschmitt ME-109G-10 – GER | AIRCRAFT – FIGHTER

The Battle of Berlin, designated the Berlin Strategic Offensive Operation by the Soviet Union, was one of the last major offensives of the European theater of World War II. On April 16th, 1945 massive Soviet forces attacked from the north, east and south. Over the course of the next week, the Red Army gradually took the entire city. The forces available for the city’s defense included roughly 45,000 soldiers in several severely depleted German Army and Waffen-SS divisions. These divisions were supplemented by the police force, boys in the compulsory Hitler Youth, WWI veterans and women’s auxiliary units. Knowing his inevitable fate, Hitler committed suicide on April 30th in an underground Berlin bunker. The city’s garrison surrendered on May 2nd, but fighting continued to the north-west, west, and south-west of the city until the end of the war in Europe with the German formal surrender to the Western Allies on May 8th and to the Soviet Union, in a separate ceremony, on May 9th.
