A ghost town, the Russian war and how 225 soldiers held back the German Blitzkrieg.
75 years ago, on 6 June 1944, the Atlantic wall broke during D-Day. From Den Helder, the Wadden Sea area was protected by the German land forces, Navy and Air Force. Den Helder was bombed over 150 times, and Lancasters crossed the sea and over the Frisian islands to cities like Hamburg to bomb them in turn. Radar stations were built in defence and hundreds of bunkers were built in the Wadden Sea area. Learn about the exciting story of the war in the sky above the Wadden and the Atlantic wall.
