Here by chance I found the fortress of Ergan built by the Germans during WW-II. Ergan fortress was armed with 15,5 cm artillery used against enemy warships and loads of these artillery batteries were built along the Norwegain coastline as part of Hitlers "Festung Europa" and the Atlantic Wall. The fortress was bombed several times by Royal Airforce during the war,but being well camouflaged the bombs only caused civilian casualties in the village of Bud.
