Introduction

The M272 Fire Control Bunker at Batterie Heerenduin MKB 4/201 part of Festung IJmuiden in the Netherlands.

During World War 2 the Germans built an enormous amount of concrete bunkers and fixed fortifications commonly known as the Atlantikwall, it stretched from the Pyrenees in Spain all the way to Norway. Their remains can still be seen today and in 2013, 2016, 2018, 2022, 2023 and our latest visit in 2024 we began a journey to visit and photograph the many remains of these bunkers as well as the vast array of wonderful museums that are all over France. Our latest visit also includes a visit to Kleve, Germany to photograph one of the last remaining West Wall bunkers as well as a visit to Batterie Heerenduin MKB 4/201 part of Festung IJmuiden in the Netherlands.
