Hope this is ok in this forum. I have been studying as best I can the battle for Seelow, Halbe etc. When I google earth Seelow today there are still many mahy trenches and gun emplacements to be seen. However I am from the US and do not know the local laws etc.
If/When I visit Seelow would be a place and Halbe etc and trying to retrace the battle and retreat. Do you know if you can drive some of those small country farm roads to the trenches and explore them? I know in the US places like gettysburg have well defined parks, paths, details and I know that isn't the case for WW2 and Germany but do you need permission? how do you know who owns what? I wouldn't go everywhere but there are a couple places I have historically linked to units that have trenches still there and it would be cool to see them.
also, is there a definitive, accurate book on seelow, hlabe to berlin you would recommend?
