Brittany 2012 : Brittany 12_04 : Keroman Passage

Here, the cruise ship overshadows the massive German submarine base that the Allies could not destroy during WWII. The Keroman U-Boat base, known as Keroman Festung, could house 28 U-Boats. The base was constructed on orders from Admiral Karl Donitz. The first U-Boat sailed on July 7, 1940 - nine years before my birth. The base eventually overhauled 492 U-Boats.

Some of the underground must have at least considered a try at destroying it? Too bad they didn't. What is it used for now?
