Norwegian Coastal Defences

Post by OldBill » 17 May 2021 02:36

Hello All,
I am trying to find a list of all the Norwegian coastal batteries, fortifications, and their locations. I know of only a few, so any help would be appreciated.

Dr. Niehorster has at least some of them:

Also click on "1st Military District" on that page.

Cheers

Thank you fellows! I found much of what was needed on those sites. Now I need to set aside time to actually locate battery positions. Were there others besides these?

Hello

You have a PM.

You can also use this site, you have to have Google Earth on your PC to use it, as it shows the positions on GE.
