Plans of Verdun forts with scale?
Permalink   


All, I have found so far on the internet lack scale, so I have no idea how big they were. Does anyone know any website which has plans of these forts with scale?

I've looked for similar dealing with German forts. there's not a whole lot out there in english though.

which forts specifically? Doumont perhaps?

greetings, Josh

Don't know if you can get hold of a copy, but Osprey's "Verdun 1916" Campaign book by William Martin has basic plans of Vaux & Douaumont in it. The others (Souville, Tavannes and so on) tend to be left out, on the whole.

As for the web: don't know.
