Germany's Atlantic Wall was the most ambitious military fortification program of World War II. Following its conquest of Western Europe, Germany had to defend some 5,000km of Atlantic coastline from the Spanish border to the Arctic Circle. The United States' entry into the war and the inevitability of an Anglo-American landing in Western Europe resulted in the fortification of this coastline along its entire length. Focusing on the northern Atlantic Wall in the Low Countries and Scandinavia, this title addresses the special defensive features and unique aspects of fortification in these countries, such as the early focus on fortifying Norway, due to early British commando raids; the greater use of turreted naval guns; and, the establishment of first-line Flak defences in the Low Countries to counter the Allied strategic bombing campaign.

Once it became apparent that German military ambitions in the west were to be thwarted by British resistance and Hitler's attention turned to the greater goal of the defeat of Stalin's Russia, the need to shore up the defense of Europe against any possible attack from the British Isles became imperative. Although earlier phases of the war had proved the ineffectiveness of fixed defensive lines- most notably in the failure of the French Maginot Line -the concept of an Atlantic Wall was central to German defensive plans in the west. Stretching along the Atlantic and Channel coasts, a complex network of fortifications was constructed, a network that was to have a dramatic impact on the Allied strategic planning for D-Day in June 1944.
Although the Atlantic Wall was to fail its ultimate test, along certain sections of the coast the German defenses were able to impose massive casualties on the invasion force; if the German support forces had been able to reach the Allied beachhead more rapidly, the history of the war might have been fundamentally different.
A book devoted to the construction, manning and defence of Hitler's Atlantic Wall, largely from the German viewpoint, and covering such issues as how far the French resistance stifled construction and sabotaged materials.

D Day (June 6, 1944) D Day, the 6th of June one of the most pivotal moments in world history. In a massive Armada of thousands of ships, 3,000,000 allied troops land at Three Beaches in Normandy, France one of the most incredibly co ordinated military operations ever. Scaling the impregnable "Atlantic Wall," constructed by the Germans, turns out to be one of the most difficult and costly battles of World War 11. Retaking France (6 weeks after D Day) Six weeks after the D Day invasion of the Beaches of Normandy, the allied forces are pushing the Germans back through the French countryside. Town by town is won back as Panzer divisions retreat back to the Meuse River. Finally, the Red Ball Express makes the difference and daringly gets supplies through the General George Patton's 3"" Army, allowing the Americans to crush the Germans.
