“Festung Lorient”  (“Fortress Lorient”)  was a very important German submarine-base and naval strongpoint in World War Two. It is famous because of its HUGE submarine bunker ( “Ubootbunker”). Because of its importance for the German Kriegsmarine, it was fortified to the highest level. The entire town was surrounded by coastal batteries, anti-aircraft batteries, radarstations, infantry positions – all in fortress-standard bunkers. It was only captured by the Allies after fierce fighting in 1944 / 45.
