World War II Abandoned Places (Hardback)

£19.99
Usually despatched within 2 days.

Synopsis

A rusting anti-aircraft fort in the North Sea. A German submarine base in France. A Flak tower in a Viennese park - more than 70 years after the end of World War II, its legacy can still be seen from Europe to Japan.

World War II Abandoned Places explores more than 100 bunkers, pillboxes, submarine bases, forts and gun emplacements from the North Sea to Okinawa. Included are defensive structures, such as the Maginot Line on France's eastern border with Germany, Germany's own western and eastern border defences, and the Atlantic Wall, the German-built bunkers and pillboxes on the coast from Denmark down to Brittany. The book also includes both Hitler's and Himmler's Eastern Front bunkers in Poland.

But beyond the military installations, the book explores the ruins of concentration camps, the empty village of Oradour-Sur-Glane, Hitler's mountain retreat at Berchtesgaden and the dilapidated Nazi party rally grounds in Nuremberg, among other non-military places.

With 150 outstanding colour photographs, World War II Abandoned Places is a brilliant pictorial examination of both the military and non-military legacy of the conflict.
