    I think Normandy and the Frenchicon coast is so littered with Germanicon debris, that the French Government and local Mayories have decided to leave everything in situ, in the hope it will fade away...........not in their lifetime!!

    I seem to remember hearing somewhere that the Germans put "something else" into the mix of aggregates that had the effect of making their concrete especially strong and long lasting. It wasn't the iron reinforcing bars, but something that went into the mix of aggregates and cement but at the time the Germans may not have been fully aware of the affect of adding this extra ingredient into the concrete mix.

    Their mix was 1 to 5 in relation to cement to sand thats why it was strong
