Hürtgen Forest

Peterberg, Hürtgenwald, Germany
Hürtgen Forest

This weekend I visited the Hürtgen Forest in Germany to start a new project about the Battle of the Hürtgen Forest. The purpose of this first trip was to get an impression of the area and to visit the sites, which played a role during the battle. I’ve located several bunkers from the Westwall and was impressed by the many traces in the landscape. Trenches, artillery positions and foxholes are still clearly visible today.
