Tobruk Bunker Hollum

A Tobruk.

This is a small concrete bunker with an opening at the top from which it could be fired with a machine gun. The name comes from Tobruk in Libya, where the Germans first discovered this originally Italian design. Thousands were subsequently built in the Atlantic Wall.
