Workgroup Modern Fortifications

Welcome to this site.

The Workgroup Modern Fortifications (WMF) is a member of the Simon Stevin Vlaams Vestingbouwkundig Centrum. (former Simon Stevinstichting)

The Simon Stevin Centrum has the objective to promote the study, the conservation c.q. the restoration of fortifications (old, out of military use), as memorials of history and as monument of nature.

The association is interested in the fortifications in Belgium and Europe. The study results in the newsletter of WMF :  WMF-News, the magazine Vesting, publications and the latest information about activities, books, etc…

The subject fortification is too large to cover all, so a workgroup exists to study the modern fortifications. This covers the Atlantic Wall, Maginot Line, Westwall, KW-line, WW-I bunker lines in Belgium, etc… Actually we have specialists for these subjects at home and abroad.

-> If you are interested to write some small articles for WMF-News, please let me know !!!
