Have you ever toured the Normandy beaches or Bastogne, Belgium? My office in Germany was a former Luftwaffe hanger. And in the mid-1950, I lived at Warner Kaserne, Munich where they had the second largest building in the world. Actually is was the largest in the world when Hitler had it built and it could barracks 18,000 soldiers. Yep, 18,000 soldiers in one building. It was not until we built the Pentagon that it was surpassed.Best book I have ever read about WWII
"Enemy at the Gates" by William Craig
Dealt with Stalingrad.
The Russians are a different breed. Amazing.
I highly recommend it to anyone who is a war buff.
When the barracks were acquired by the U.S. forces in 1950, they were renamed to Warner Kaserne. The huge main building; today number was the second largest after the Pentagon, which was used by the U.S. Army.
