This Saturday (3 June) is Bunkerdag (Bunkerday) in the Netherlands. Everywhere in Holland but mainly along the coast bunkers are opened to the public. I'll be in the Van Stolkpark in Den Haag (Hogeweg 15) with my book. It's Widerstandsnest 311, the HQ of the Führer der Schnellboote. We can have a chat and you can take a look in the book Atlantikwall in Kaart. See you there!

Hello,

My new book "L'artillerie automobile française des origines à 1919" is just out (The Editor: "Histoire et Collections"-Paris).
The book depicts all french production of motorized artillery: Motorized Heavy Artillery ("Artillerie Lourde à Tracteurs"), High-Power motorized batteries ("Batteries d'A.L.G.P à Tracteurs"), motorized Marine Artillery batteries ("batteries mobiles des canonniers-marins"), motorized Anti-Aircraft batteries, fully tracked Artillery, etc...
They are more that 450 rare photographs and 192 pages in this book.
The cover of this hard-bound book:

Guy François.

For the Gallouneys, it's not only a book but also dives pads for divers !
The second photo of Jory come from these.
I think this is the first time this has been done.

Considering picking up "Fortress Third Reich: German Fortifications and Defense Systems in World War II" by R. Jurga, but wondering if anyone here has any feedback on it before I do.

Primarily interested in the technical aspects like detailed drawings of bunkers, ventilation systems, and the like. Would love to hear if it's worth the investment for someone with a focus on those aspects.
