So where's the jacuzzi, steam room, pool and room service ???? What's a lair without a mint on my pillow ????
Comment of the year ! Gotta run my keyboard under water... Be right back.
90,000 pounds for a lousy 13 hectares? You know how hard it is to pull down that kind of pennyfarthing per year? And I want many more sq.rods and a height of at least 20 cubits for that kind of quid.
Bet its Haunted! The Ghost Hunters should make a show there.
My dad, in the US Army’s 20th Armored Division, brought home a rock from the fireplace of the Eagle’s Nest in Bertchesgaden.
Wasn’t Wolf’s Lair part of the Walkyrie story?
“Wasnt Wolfs Lair part of the Walkyrie story?”
Yes. See the second from last paragraph in the posted article.
“The Wolf’s Lair was also the scene of the July 1944 assassination attempt when a bomb concealed in a briefcase by Count Claus von Stauffenberg just failed to kill Hitler during a staff meeting.”
Count Claus von Stauffenberg, played by Tom Cruise.
Thanks to Stalin and the Yalta Conference. With the consent of FDR, he ripped off the eastern 25 percent of Poland for the USSR, and gave an approximately equal area of eastern Germany to Poland.
after the war, Poland was moved westwards by many miles — it lost it’s eastern territories (Kresy) which are now western Ukraine and Belarus (places like Lwow, Pinsk etc. were Polish) and was given Germanic lands so that the border between Poland and Germany became the Oder-Neisse river stretch
