The First World War began right here. When Germany invaded Belgium as the first part of their plan to fight a two front war they confronted the city of Liège with its many concrete forts in their way. To combat this the Kaiser's armies produced the largest cannons ever made-Big Bertha's-and fired 2 ton explosive shells relentlessly until these modern fortresses caved in, entombing hundreds of Belgian soldiers in the process. The fort has been left in it's original condition with massive chunks of steel and concrete tossed about like children's toys so that all can see the ferocity modern war. It's a very powerful site.
