Schnabelstand A.O.K. 15

Post by bennojollo » 24 May 2022 22:23

Dear readers and friends,

I hope i can list this message like this?

I know it is a long time ago i visited the forum and perhaps i have to this more. Since my last visit we made (some) work on the M.G. bunker Schnabelstand. We is Dirk Peeters and Sébastian Haule and myself. Today the book file was send to the printer and after a final check on the digitalprint i hope to give green light for production. I wanted to upload the cover but the file was to big. Anyway we have completed a book called Beak and Beaches, size 21 x 21 cm, 220 pages, hardcover, bound pages, fullcolour. English text. Limited production of 150 books. Price 35,- excl. shipping.
We have tried to give a (almost complete) history of the early M.G. bunker. With drawings, lots of pictures and many unknow facts we where able to build up this book to 220 pages. A number we never had in mind of when we started our research. The chapters 1 to 5 contains more general info on planning and different types. Chapter 6 contains information on each K.V.A. within the 15th Armee.

Also I want to thanks everbody that help and the co-writers Sébastien and Dirk!
