Casemate special model at Venlo - may 1940

The utterly destroyed casemate [type AM, special model] at the Venlo bridge. The wooden camouflage structure was smashed to pieces whilst the casemate itself was systematically shot to rubble by AT guns. Nevertheless the German crossing of the Maas at this location was extremely costly. Over 30 men KIA alone.
