The Maginot Line, the massive series of fortifications built by France in the 1930s to defend its borders with Germany and Italy, is perhaps the most maligned collection of fortifications ever built. Despite being a technological marvel, and the most sophisticated and complex set of fortifications built up to that time, it failed to save France from crushing defeat in 1940. Yet there are those who argue that it accomplished exactly what it was designed to do. This book provides a concise and informative treatment of the Maginot Line, from North-East France to the Mediterranean. Packed with plans, contemporary and modern images, plus digital artwork, it presents a detailed visual exploration of this famous fortification system.read more
Having decided that I like this booklet well enough to actually go ahead and buy it, what it boils down to is that this is the best concise examination of the famous fortication system that I've seen. This is even as compared to the competitively priced paperback edition of "Fortress France" by Kaufmann & Kaufmann.read more
