living history 1939 - 45


  • New website
    The new Etulinja website is up and running. On this page you can find news regarding Etulinja, basic information about us, links to our social media and resources relating to Finns in World War 2.

What is Etulinja?

Etulinja is a Finnish World War 2 reenactment association.

Our activity includes private training, public displays, historical research and cooperation with museums and other historical associations. Our aim is to research and uphold historical Finnish military traditions.

A significant part of our activity is
practical training and empiric study of written information.

Etulinja is politically and religiously unaffiliated. Geographically we are from different regions of Finland but our events are usually located in southern Finland.

On these pages you can find photos and videos of our activities. You can also find information on the next public events we are going to take part in.

We are happy to answer any questions you may have about us. Contact us via Facebook or email.
