During the 11 days of combat, the garrison of about 560 men will resist with heroism and selflessness against German troops. Between 500 and 2000 Germans will fall during the 23 assaults carried out against the Fort. Belgian coast, 7 losses will be regrettable. On May 21, 1940, following the exhaustion of its ammunition, the Fort had to go; This will then be the departure for 5 years in captivity in the Stalags.
