Maginot Line Immerhof #3

Fort

Maginot Line Series 2007

 

This is the infamous Maginot Line, a network of dug in defense fortifications from WWII .... the Germans just walked around the Maginot Line, so it was not very effective.

 

Andre Maginot (although he was not the man initially in charge)is the man who was put in charge of the project, although most French generals disagreed with the project, particularly with the fact that if Germany attacked it would just walk around it, plust the cost of the project. Surely, when Germany began the invasion of France in WWII it just walked around the defense line and came at the back.

 

I put notes on the photo to point out some things.
