High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! The Fort de Loncin is one of twelve forts built as part of the Fortifications of Liege in the late 19th century in Belgium. It was constructed between 1881 and 1884 according to the plans of General Henri Alexis Brialmont. Contrasting with the French forts built in the same era by Raymond Adolphe Sere de Rivieres, the fort was built exclusively of unreinforced concrete, a new material, rather than masonry. The fort was destroyed during World War I in the Battle of Liege, when the fort's magazine was hit by a large-calibre German shell, killing most of the fort's occupants. The site is now a military cemetery. The fort was never re-used. The Fort de Loncin is located about 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) west of the centre of Liege, in the direction of Brussels and Tongeren. The garrison comprised about 500 men.
