Introduction

The Drehturm SK gun bunker which could rotate 360 degrees, Batterie Waldam, east of Calais.

During World War 2 the Germans built an enormous amount of bunkers and 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, another visit in 2016 and my latest visit in the summer of 2018 I started my 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. As time permits we will continue to update this site with other countries but for now the main focus is on France and with two small visits to Belgium. We will also add a small section dedicated to our visits to the RAF museum in Watford and the Imperial War Museum in London.

Also included will be GPS and navigation information on how to best navigate your way through the beautiful countrysides of France and Belgium.
