Allied Military Facilities in West Germany

With the collapse of the Nazi regime at the end of the Second World War, the occupying forces found themselves in position to potentially go to war with the once friendly Soviet Union. Many units took up installations that had been previously used by the German Wehrmacht. Below is a list of bases and locations of western Allied forces in West Germany.

  1. What an interesting blog, introduced by a thought-provoking photo. The unusual wall painting of the dwellings is also a strangely modern interpretation. Something like this hieroglyphic view of a park by Swiss painter Paul Klee, http://EN.WahooArt.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT475.
    The image can be seen at wahooart.com who can supply you with a canvas print of it.
