On December 22, 1942 General Dornberger was called to an urgent meeting in Berlin with the Arms Minister. There he received the order, as directed by Hitler, to construct as soon as possible, a bunker from which the attack on England would start.
Today, the bunker, located in the Eperlecques forest, is a museum where the most offensive weapons known to date, the V1 and V2 rockets, were constructed, but never deployed. But what if they had been? You can re-live the main events of WWII with interactive commentary. It covers the world during the war, the deportation and the Nazi camps and the war’s consequences and an look at how the world may have looked today if the British bombing of August 27 1943 that thwarted Hitler’s plans, had not taken place.
This incredible museum is located around 30 minutes drive from Calais. You can reach it via the A26 motorway and exiting at junction (sortie) 2 in the direction of Nordausques.
