Starting at 13:28 I am wondering if my eyes are tricking me. I think I see an image of an SS skull (deaths head) on the wall (right side middle of frame). It is even looking in the same direction as the one used by the SS. Is this just an illusion or...?

it would have been nice to be able to interview the people that built and used the tunnels!
WW2HistoryHunter (1 month ago)
i agree. Thanks

Since you speak and read German why don't you try to find some books or records about the fortifications you enjoy. The Germans were very diligent about keeping records, so some must exist somewhere.

This reminds me of exploring North Head here in Auckland, New Zealand. It's a very large complex of fortifications mostly built during the Crimean War and added to during the World Wars. There was a 'Russians are coming' hysteria in the late 1800s, so they spent a fortune on fortifying the entrance to the harbour, but it was a massive waste of money really because the Russians has absolutely zero capability of sending an effective invasion force way down here from Vladivostok (why would they even?). I suspect the hysteria had political motivations rather than actual security ones (use the press to make the citizens afraid and then be seen to provide the solution. Defence contractors get the jobs and the politicians get the kickbacks and votes. Win, win).
Aquila Rossa (1 month ago)
Have you ever found human remains while metal detecting these sites? They used forced labour like POWs etc. It's the first thing that comes to mind when i see those tunnels etc. It makes me imagine guards yelling at prisoners to work harder. The videos have a kind of haunting effect for me due to that history.
subhadra verma (2 months ago)
Waaaaaaw. ..amazing. .l like to see the historical sites. ..great work done by u dear. ..
WW2HistoryHunter (1 month ago)
Thanks my friend.
Rob mcman (2 months ago)
That was very incredible but it was frustrating as well because you didn't show where the tunnels actually went to, I could see myself camping there for a weekend in order to fully explore the entire area. Thanks again for a wonderfully riveting video. Rob in Texas.

WW2HistoryHunter......One of these times when I get some time for a vacation/holiday I would like to meet you in Germany so that I could go with you to explore places such as this if that would be alright and if you would be up for that. I have explored places like this in America. There is an old military base in San Francisco, California call the Presideo (it has been closed for about 20 to 25 years) and the old base now belongs to the national parks service. There was an old tunnel that went from the base to to the beach where there were gun emplacements. The gun emplacements are now gone and the tunnels have now been sealed up.

Miraculous find, awesome video! Thank you for loving it as much as you did - I agree with others, you should contact a historical society so it can be preserved properly before anyone else can find it. Your respect is admirable!
Dencil Dean (2 months ago)
some of those German bunkers had ( BATTLE SHIP GUNS ) in them and some of those landing craft full of soldiers heading to the beach got hit with shells from these guns one minute they were there the next minute that landing craft with all those men were gone I mean completely gone nothing left gone that is why they had tombs for ( the unknown soldier ) this is what happened when they got a direct hit from a ( 16 inch shell )

Awesome job guys I love your videos keep up the good work that was incredible you guys are so lucky you were able to go and explore that stuff I live in California and I’ve explored many gold mines out in the California desert and remind me of that awesome I love it good job
Ajimboalogo Mueller (3 months ago)
Those are shell designations. Air Burst (timed fuse) shell ... High Explosive shell...and Armour Piercing shell. The common types used by all artillery pieces...well maybe the Armour Piercing rounds are specific to the 88. What a versatile piece that 88 was. probably the best weapon ever developed.
WW2HistoryHunter (2 months ago)
cool to know and thanks for taking time to comment and watch

How come there were mosquitoes everywhere inside that cave? How come there are are mosquitoes everywhere, everywhere? They need to suck blood, right? What could they be feeding on? Dead German soldiers from 70 years ago?

Panzergranate 39 or Pzgr. 39, but abbreviated in this bunker as PZ.39, was a German armour-piercing shell. It consisted of the shell body fitted with Armour Penetrating (AP), Ballistic Caps (BC) or a High Explosive filler (HE). A tracer unit (T) could be incorporated into the base fuze. Note, the HE rounds were known to British tank crews as 'molten lead' as the fragments were so red hot that when they cut through the victims it instantly cooked the surrounding flesh at the same time. This could seal the wound limiting blood loss if the victim was lucky enough to survive. Cooking parts of the main torso would most likely be fatal, but not so the limbs. Inside an attacking Sherman tank just outside Tunis in April 1943 , My father's right leg was severed off in such a way when a HE exploded inside, cooking the flesh and instantly sealing main artery that ran down the leg, ironically saving his life. His other wounds were very bloody, but he survived, sadly unlike the driver who died soon after. Pzgr. 39 was only used in guns firing fixed ammunition. Different versions of the shell were made, but the changes were usually minor. For instance, in the 88 mm Pzgr. 39-1 version the quality of steel was improved. The 'AZ' are the detonators, stored independently mitigating an explosion by accident or a direct hit. Zt.Z is where they stored the timers. These shells with timers fitted buried themselves in the ground where they became time-bombs. There would be no warning whistle of an incoming shell as they had long since landed. As an unsuspecting troops advanced onto this area these would explode without any warning. With no warning there was no time to duck or take cover.

Hi WW2HistoryHunter! My name is Chuck and I just found you on YouTube this evening. This is the first video I have watched that you created, but I hope to watch everyone of them on your list. I am a WWII fanatic-LOL! You did an incredible job of both filming this old German site, and your audio presentation was excellent. I have subscribed to your YouTube site, and will try to watch another one of your videos tomorrow night. Thanks so much!... Chuck

Where were the 88 Guns?
Andrew Austin (2 months ago)
So click bait title basically the video was good but the title does give the impression you were going to show 88mm cannon and clearly didn't. This is becoming an all too often thing on youtube lately shame.
WW2HistoryHunter (4 months ago)
The gun position perhaps ? THanks

Lead mine for bullets
WW2HistoryHunter (4 months ago)
Thank you for watching.
Anthony Hough (4 months ago)
Great viewing as always !! HH!! Do you think someone may have mined the area many years before for minerals and the Germans adapted the structure to fit around it ?
WW2HistoryHunter (4 months ago)
no , it was purely built by them. Thanks

Super cool!! There has to be some artefacts about that place. Maybe a little distance away from the rocks? With all that work and the amount of men required the place must have some relics to give back to you. The enormity of the place is staggering . Many thanks for sharing .
WW2HistoryHunter (5 months ago)
Great location indeed Tracy and thanks for taking time to comment and watch.
my name is 905 (5 months ago)
do you think maybe the writing was for different types of munitions? maybe anti aircraft flak burst, armor piercing and possibly star burst illumination shells? wow, that granite was not easy to dig in the least bit either. crazy ingenuity in the name of killing. thanks again.

The last evidence of pre-atomic weapons warfare. Natural surroundings make great camouflage. Germans were masters at the art of war. Good for them! By the way, USA military learned a lot from them!

11:20 Zt.z. stands for Zeitzünder which means time fuse for explosives and looks like that: http://www.eeoda.de/2012/1201_FB3_ZtZ_S-30_Ges.pdf And I think AZ means Aufschlagzünder. It is the thing that lets the explosive explode when it hits a resistor. But I am not 100% sure
WW2HistoryHunter (5 months ago)

Another good one, hope there will be some drone shots in the next video. Love your drone shots as they give a chance to see the site from a totally new perspective. Keep up the good work.
