The 5th fortress


One thing that struck me as we wandered around was how peaceful it all was. It was a beautiful day, clear skies and no wind. Inside and out there was no noise, no traffic, just distant birdsong.

From the relics around it was obviously the scene of a long and bloody battle, resulting in many deaths on both sides. Despite this, seventy years on it had become a tranquil space and museum.

It really brings home the futility of war.

About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
