    About the Author of this site.

Special interests:
  - The forts and fortresses  of the
     period prior to World War I.

  - The first and second Danish-Prussian
    war in 1848 and 1864.

  -  The Danish Coastal forts during the Cold   War.

I have allways been interested in history.  In my youth, primarily WW2  and  the German occupation of  Denmark.
Inspired of my fathers  storys about  the Danish resisteance during WW  II,  I suppose.

In the mid 1980´s I discovered the  Danish  Defence Line around  Copenhagen, Vestvolden.  I just couldn't let the amazing story  go, which step by step, led to the Web Site about  the Fortifications of Copenhagen

Joining the Site0 community, I  became  regional Director of the  Scandinavian  region of Site0.
