All Stichting Missing In Action (MIA) members are interested in everything related to the Second World War between 1930 and 1945. Some are interested and have knowledge about materials (ammunition, weapons and equipment), while others have knowledge about strategy and tactics (defense tactics, attack tactics, e.g.). By using these combined knowledge’s, reading reports like diaries plus listening to stories of eyewitnesses our foundation is able to actually visualize what happened on a particular battlefield.
