Adolf Hitlers Flak Towers

I love learning something new. R J Evans, one of my favorite writers online, takes us back into the world of Third Reich, always a fascinating and bizarre subject.

In 1940 Adolf Hitler was a very angry man. The RAF had launched a successful raid on the German capitol of Berlin and something had to be done to protect the city. He ordered the building of three enormous flak towers - and they were to be constructed in just six months. Other cities in the Reich soon followed this example and today these massive concrete and steel leviathans still dominate the skylines in some places. The question still causes huge debate though - what should be done with them? Read More about the Flak Towers

Interesting stuff. I love reading about history, and for some reason my cutoff point is WW2. Nothing after that is very interesting to me.
