About this event

This talk will describe a recent Battlefield Study undertaken by 66 Works Group RE to study German Fortifications on the Channel Island of Jersey. Participants examined the engineering techniques and innovative solutions employed, to foster a better understanding of the tactical, operational and strategic decisions surrounding the occupation of the Channel Islands. German FPE designs were analysed against a range of historical and contemporary threat weapons using modern modelling software and techniques.
