I Was Curious About This Line Of Concrete Pillars

When countries go to war, we usually think of all the death and destruction that happens during countless battles being waged. But what about the battlefields left over long after the war has ended? They are usually abandoned, giving you an emotional and serene landscape to really take in. Europe was involved in many wars during the 20th century, which left behind many abandoned battlefields. Not only are the battlefields abandoned, but oftentimes you will see abandoned military fortifications as well. These fortifications are buildings that were usually designed for the defense of territories during war. They also used to solidify rule in a region during a more peaceful time. Here are some amazing pictures of military fortifications from photographer Marc Wilson in Europe that will give you an eerie, yet calm feeling.

These fortifications definitely serve as very eery reminders of a violent history of nations at war around the world. While these pictures were all taken around Europe, I’m sure each and every nation that has been to war has these same type of reminders scattered across their lands.
