Flak Towers

December 7, 2012

These three enormous flak towers guarded a German Marine base near Angers, France. Each tower would have been armed with several large caliber and small caliber anti-aircraft guns. They were destroyed by Allied air attacks as General Patton's 3rd Army advanced East.

    It’s not flak tower but water tower near Angers.
