Secret Command Post MB5

Secret Command Post of the East Germany Army

The town near this hidden abandoned bunker complex looks back on a particularly dark history directly linked to the euthanasia killings during the Third Reich. The bunkers however were built during the 1970s as a command post for gathering intelligence and as a switchboard for the military district in the North of East Germany. A submarine communications cable connected this part of the facility to a bunker of the Secret Police across a nearby lake. This area of Eastern Germany was firmly in the hands of the National People's Army (NVA) and the Secret Police (Stasi).
The distinctive secrecy surrounding this place soon became the stuff for legends and rumors about 25 underground bunkers, chemical weapons and ....(more)

Tour Report: Bismarck-Tower W.

Published 2017-02-20

Bismarck-Tower in Northern Germany

Bismarck-Towers have been a fashionable thing during a certain time in the German past, so a lot of them were built, and you can find one in almost every region in Germany.
The region we chose for our tour in May of last year was no different, so we decided to enjoy the nice weather and climb ourselves a Bismarck-Tower.
It was pretty easy - the steel door was open, and we simply walked up the stairs.
There are a lot of cracks in the walls and there's always the uneasy feeling of the thing possibly collapsing any minute, but we took a couple of shots and returned to the bottom unharmed.....(more)

George Washington in a British Military Uniform in Waterford, Pennsylvania (Fri, 24 Feb 2017)
Major George Washington of the British Colonial Militia. While Washington is most often remembered for his role in the Revolutionary War and the founding of the United States, this statue recalls his beginnings as an officer of King George III. This statue commemorates the 1753 visit of then Major George Washington to the French Fort Le Boeuf. He was to deliver a letter demanding the relocation of French settlers from the Ohio Valley claimed by England. It was his first act as a major in the British Army, and the beginning of his military career. He was just 21. The French sent Major Washing back to his commanding officer with a polite letter of refusal. Washington's account of the expedition was printed in newspapers on both sides of the Atlantic, making his name as a personage of military leadership. He would remain a loyal member of the British provincial militia throughout the French and Indian War and afterwards, until the Crown began imposing undue taxes on goods imported to the colonies. The statue was erected in 1922 by the citizens of Waterford, Pennsylvania, the small town on the former site of Fort Le Boeuf, to commemorate Washington's first act of military diplomacy. True to the period, Washington is depicted wearing the uniform of the Virginia Militia and extends the cease-and-desist letter to the French.
