But maybe in truth you just can't recreate war in a movie. Reenactors come closest, for sure...they know the smell of the gunpowder the heft of a sword.
I used to think so until I met some.

I break it down like this:

95% posers who don't know anything. Re-enacting is less dangerous than riding a motorcycle to get away from the wife for a weekend; and they get to shoot guns.
3% mildly interesting types sadly handicapped by thick glasses and IT careers.
1% psychopaths who think they're really there, or at least want to be. Genuine posssibility they'll start loading live shot some day.
1% people who are interested in the period, and want to get a sense of what if was like to live in it.
This space for hire.
