Though this web site is designed to provide a wealth of information on traveling throughout France to visit the many wonderful WWII museums and to visit the remains of the Atlantikwall we are by no means experts on any one subject.

There are many web sites out there that will provide more detailed and specific information than we can provide here.

These are our top picks:
Imperial War Museum

Probably the best and most informative military museum in the world, has a number of satellite locations and provides research facilities on multiple conflicts.

The Democratic Republic of Germany has an exhaustive military archive called Bundesarchiv. Here you can research a number of conflicts most notably the Second World War. It carries the largest archive of German research material in the world including photographs and records on German military units during WWII.

This is the Alpha and Omega on the subject of bunkers covering the Maginot Line, The Atlantikwall, German WWII frescoes and Cold War bunker information. This really is the holy grail of web sites, nothing comes close.
