Atlantikwall.co.uk (*)

 

English-language site covering the Atlantikwall in France and, rather uncommonly, wartime installations in the south of England. France is covered from the Pas-de-Calais to the Vendee and Charente-Maritime. The major drawback, however, is its incompleteness. The coverage of the English installations would appear to be a lot more comprehensive. х х

Atlantikwall from the Belgian Coast to Boulogne (**+)
This is an excellent site focusing on 3 aspects: World War I bunkers in Flanders, Atlantikwall bunkers and V1 launching sites in France in Belgium. The site gives a fairly complete coverage of Atlantikwall bunkers along the Belgian coast, but France is barely dealt with. х х х х
Atlantikwall-Relikte(***+)
 
This is a wonderful and very helpful site, providing aerial views of many sites from Norway to France and the Channel Islands The site is extremely helpful when you are looking for the exact location of a site. х
Atlantikwall Superforum (**)
This is an apolitical French-language forum for all aspects of the Atlantikwall in France (only). The forum is interesting if you have any questions you want to ask other interested people. х х х х
Atlantikwall Website (*)

 

English-language website covering the Atlantikwall from Norway to the south of France. Main parts relate to bunkers, bunker components, bunker complexes (also today) and museums and objects related to the Atlantikwall. The site is no longer updated. The information offered is far from complete and fragmentary. Pictures do not have an explanation. х

х
Axis Biographical Research (*) English-language website providing a free and easily accessible source of general biographical details for the serious researcher, family members tracing their geneology, and anyone else wishing to learn more about the men and women who served on the "other side" in the Second World War. However, the site is far from complete and only an number of high-ranking officers and officials have so far been covered. х х х х х

Axis History Factbook Home (**)

Good site about the organization of the German army, but information on many units is sometimes limited, making the Lexicon der Wehrmacht a better site altogether. х х х х х

Axis History Forum (**+) This is an apolitical forum for discussions on the Axis nations, as well as the First and Second World Wars in general hosted by Marcus Wendel's Axis History Factbook in cooperation with Michael Miller's Axis Biographical Research, Christoph Awender's WW2 day by day, Dan Reinbold's Das Reich and Christian Ankerstjerne's Panzerworld. The forum is interesting if you have any questions you want to ask other interested people. х х х х х

Bunker Archief (**) Excellent Dutch site, specializing in the Festung IJmuiden. The site is especially good at providing information, but the number of pictures is rather disappointing. х х х

х х
Bunkerfotos.com (**+) Interesting website covering the Atlantikwall in Denmark, The Netherlands, Belgium, and France. Many positions are covered with good pictures. х
Bunker Freaks Antwerpen (**) Belgian site providing information on Atlantikwall bunkers and other fortifications (also WW I) in Belgium and France. The Atlantikwall itself is not covered in detail.

х х х х х
Bunkerpictures (**)
Bunkerpictures is a great English-language site covering the Atlantikwall in The Netherlands, France, and Belgium. Many sites are covered with many pictures.

х
Bunkersite.com (**) Bunkersite is a great English-language site covering the Atlantikwall in The Netherlands, France, and Belgium. Many sites are covered with many pictures.

х
DAWA (*) DAWA (Deutsches Atlantikwallarchiv) is a wonderful organisation, which provides the detailed information available on strongpoints in France, as well as many additional materials. Unfortunately, the site is disappointing in that it does not show many pictures of the Atlantikwall and does not discuss strongpoints in detail, only offering very general overviews of the Atlantikwall in the Netherlands, Belgium, and France.

х
Der Atlantikwall - Le Mur de l'Atlantique - The Atlantikwall (*)

German-language site only covering the Atlantikwall in Pas-de-Calais, Normandy and Brittany at the time of D-Day. Some museums and cemeteries are also covered. The strongpoints covered, however, are few.

х х х х
Der Atlantikwall in Frankreich (**) This site actually connects to Atlantikwall Relikte (see above for comments) on many occasions. Sometimes, though, strongpoints can be found on the site itself (most confusing!). The site covers the entire French coast. х х х х
Deutches Marineachiv (*+) Promising site about the organization of the German navy from 1848 to the present, but much information is still lacking at present. The site does not appear to have been updated in the recent past. х х х х х
Die Deutsche Wehrmacht (**) Promising site about the organization of the German army, but information on some units has not yet been worked out and information on others is sometimes limited, making the Lexicon der Wehrmacht a better site altogether. х х х х х
Feldgrau.com - The German Armed Forces 1919-1945 (*+) Promising site about the organization of the German army, but information on many units has not yet been worked out and information on others is sometimes limited, making the Lexicon der Wehrmacht a better site altogether. х х х х х

Festung Europa (***)
Excellent site covering the Atlantikwall in Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium, France and the Channel Islands. The area of the 15th Army is pretty well covered. х
Fortificatieforum (**)
This is an apolitical Dutch-language forum for all aspects of fortifications, including the Atlantikwall. The forum is interesting if you have any questions you want to ask other interested people.
Forum für Deutsche Militärgeschichte (**)
This is an apolitical forum for German military history. The forum is interesting if you have any questions you want to ask other interested people. х х х х х
Generale des Heeres (**+) Excellent German site on the generals of the German Army. It shows names, appointments, and medals received. Also ideal for pictures of the generals! х х х х х
Gyges (***)
Unique though rather chaotic site about radar in the Luftwaffe and Kriegsmarine. Many aspects of the Luftnachrichtendienst are covered with information that cannot be found elsewhere. х х х х х
Lexikon der Wehrmacht (***+)

First-rate site about all aspects of the German army with heaps of information.

х х х х х

Rommel face au Pas-de-Calais (**+)
Very interesting French-language website with information on many German strongpoints in Pas-de-Calais as well as the divisions present. х х х х

х

The Atlantikwall in Normandy (**) Excellent comprehensive English-language website on the remains of the Atlantikwall in Normandy, including information as to the exact location of the sites. The site shows German Wn numbers and guns and bunkers that existed on D-Day. The site has a good number of pictures. х х х х х
The Luftwaffe, 1933-45 (***) Excellent site about all possible aspects of the Luftwaffe. х х х х х

Third Reich BunkerArt (***) Very good site about art, camouflage, instructions, numbering, and slogans in and on Atlantikwall bunkers. Many annotated pictures. х х х х х

World War II Armed Forces (***) Excellent site about the orders of battle and organizations of the armies of 42 countries during World War II. Some theatres of war can also be selected, e.g Normandy 1944. The site has excellent clickable charts. Wonderful is also the presence of lists of organization symbols that one needs to read German maps. If only there were more such sites! х х х х х

Forts and bunkers group (*) Belgian site in English about Atlantikwall bunkers in Belgium and forts in Europe. The site is currently under construction. х х х х х
