Hitler's Atlantic Wall, the complex system of coastal fortifications that stretched from Norway to the Spanish border during the Second World War, was built to defend occupied Europe from Allied invasion. Many of its principal structures survive and can be visited today, and this book is an authoritative guide to them. The wall, which was constructed on a massive scale between 1942 and 1944 by German engineers, forced labourers and troops, consisted of strongpoints, artillery casemates, bunkers, troop shelters, minefields, anti-tank and anti-boat obstacles.
