The Kieswerk of Pointe Saint-Mathieu and the Atlantic Wall  [PDF]
G. Tomezzoli
Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2015.54017
Abstract: In this article a construction of the Atlantic Wall discovered on 02/01/2006 near the Pointe Saint Mathieu (Finistère, France) is identified and its purpose is clarified. It witnessed the presence, during the World War II, at Pointe Saint-Mathieu, of a Kieswerk or pebble factory in which the pebbles and/or crushed pebbles of the Ero Vili were stored and distributed. The Kieswerk was very likely to have participated in the construction of the Atlantic Wall fortifications of the Pointe Saint-Mathieu.

Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2015.53013
Abstract: In this article, a WWII small Italian bunker evocative of the emotions caused to the Sicilian population by the WWII terminated 70 years ago was presented. It is a bunker of type T Monoarma (i.e. bunkers for a single weapon), indicated also as type Ispettorato, and located on the Sicilian seashore, near the archaeological site of the ancient Greek city of Heraclea Minoa.
The Ero Vili and the Atlantic Wall  [PDF]
G. Tomezzoli, Y. Marzin
Advances in Anthropology (AA) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/aa.2015.54018
Abstract: In this article the events concerning the south portion of the Audierne Bay in the department of Finistère (France) during the 2nd World War are analyzed. The role of the Ero Vili and the Camp Todt in the construction of the Atlantic Wall fortification and the state of preservation of the military and logistic constructions of this portion of the Audierne Bay are presented in order to stimulate further studies by experts and amateurs.
The German Base “the Bank” at M?rs-érigné (Anjou-FR)  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2016.41004
Abstract: In general, history, structure and life in the German military bases in France during the period of the Occupation are not well known because of the past military secrecy and the present lack of surviving witnesses and relevant documentation. However, in the case of the German base at M?rs-Erigné, much information is now available through the researches of Mr. Suquet and my ascertainment on the terrain of the preservation state of its vestiges following the memory duty proposed by Mr. Suquet.
The “Fliegerhorst” of Neubiberg (Munich-Germany)  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2016.42006
Abstract: The investigation of the organization, evolution and preservation state of the Neubiberg airfield near Munich (Bavaria-Germany), now at seventy years after the conclusion of the World War II, reveals that its preservation state is good but menaced by the installation of sport facilities and the possible further expansion of the areas of the municipalities of Neubiberg, Unterhaching and of the Federal Army University. On 1991 at the end of the military operations, the airfield has not resumed its original role of sport airfield that is the reason of its construction. This would have ensured its operative survival and the survival of a landing place for aircrafts in distress.
The German Defence System of the Grève de Goulven (Finistère—FR) during the World War II  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2016.44012
Abstract: In order to prevent a possible allied landing on the Grève de Goulven, the Organization Todt prepared for the Wehrmacht (German Army), in the frame of the Atlantikwall, many military structures crewed in a close defence line formed by Wn,s. close around the Grève and in a far defence line formed by St.P.s for directing and supporting the fire of the Wn.s. Purpose of this article is to identify said military structures and investigate their preservation state. The lack of an allied landing in the Grève and the prompt retreat, on 6-8 August 1944, of the German troops inside the Festung Brest, upon the arrival of the US Army, provided a unique occasion to visit German military structure practically intact, and had a unique occasion for investigating these structures, their preservation state and the interaction of the today’s population with them.
The German Radar Surveillance around the Aber Wrach during the WW II  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.51002

In a previous article (Tomezzoli, 2016), the issue of the German radar surveillance around the Aber Wrach in Brittany has been identified. Purpose of this article is to provide replies to said issue presenting the radar bases of Keringar Vihan, Kervingam-Kerdené and Vougo-Kerizoc. If the visits on the sites permitted to determine precisely the actual preservation state of these radar bases, the memories of the witnesses have enriched this information by identifying non-evident or completely disappeared structures, adding anecdotal and historical information and confirming the recites of archival documents. It is therefore evident that this successful dual procedure should be intensified and extended to all the future studies concerning the Atlantic Wall and, in general, to all the contemporary military structures, as long as surviving primary witnesses will be available. A megalithic stone circle discovered on the site of the radar base of Kervingam-Kerdené is presented.

The WWII German Heavy Artillery Battery AV 67 of Cleus Foz (Finistère-FR)  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.52004
Abstract: The reading of literature concerning the Atlantic Wall and of the previously published articles may have conveyed the concept that the German military structures of the Atlantic Wall were formed by Regelbauten (rule-built con-structions) (Rs). This concept is not totally wrong, but leads to neglect the im-portant role played by the verstärktenfeldmäΒigen Bauwerke (strengthened field constructions) (Vfs) normally included in said structures. The present article, concerning the visit of the site of the WW II German heavy artillery battery of Cleus Foz (Finistère-FR) and the discussion of its organization, show that the Vfs in this battery represented the majority of its bunkers, and in this way indicate how said concept should be corrected.
The WW II German Coastal Artillery Battery H.K.B.1274/StP C342 at Camaret sur Mer (Finistère—FR)  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.53008
Abstract: In previous articles dedicated to various German military structures of the Atlantic Wall in West Brittany, the preservation state and the organization of their components have been analyzed. The components have generally been found in a good preservation state without damages due to combats or bombardments. This is not the case of the components of the German coastal artillery battery HKB1274/StP C342 described in this article. The article shows also the organization of the battery, how it integrated pre-existing French military structures and how a massive allied air bombardment affected it.
The WW II German Stützpunkt on the Menez-Hom (Finistère-FR)  [PDF]
Giancarlo T. Tomezzoli
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2017.54013
Abstract: The Menez-Hom hill placed between the Brest harbour and the Douarnenez bay, although only about 350 m height, dominates the surrounding territory. Therefore, during the WW II the German Wehrmacht decided to establish on its top a Stützpunkt (support point) for controlling and eventually impeding access to the Crozon peninsula to foreign troops. The available literature gives only fragmentary information about it but the mention of a Gerät (device— radar?) belonging to the FuMB686 Wolga and the presence of rests of a Seetakt radar on the Menez-Hom hill at the end of the war make the location of the Stützpunkt Wolga at the top of the Menez-Hom hill highly probable. The visit of the Stützpunkt site took place on 27/08/2010 and allowed to identify many of its components and to determine its organization.
