Fortress Visit Report : Fort Tancrément External

On my recent trip to Liege with Holts - this was the second fort we visited on Day 3, after Eben Emael. This fort, Tancrément, was the last to be completed before WW2.

These photos are of the outside of the fort.

Holts provided this page of plans for the fort
