SHARKHUNTERS International
Westerplate - the Beginning!

Over the bridge and onward into history.............

 
     
 
     
 
     
 
     
 

The memorials to those who survived

 

- and to those who did not.

     

This metal came from SCHLESWIG HOLSTEIN
after she was broken up.
 
     
 
     
  It is mind-boggling that anyone survived
the point-black barrage that his these
barracks, but hundreds did.

We begin our walk to the monument atop the high hill.    
   

Above - we see just how near is the river to the military compound when the firing began.  Really POINT BLANK!
Above left - shells of this size were fired into the barracks and other buildings here.

Even though the battleship could plainly see the target, their fire was being called in from observers in a nearby fortress.  When you click the link below, you will travel to this fortress.
