Illustrated with black and white photographs. The Battle for Hitler's Siegfried Line. From the cover: “Adolf Hitler intended it to be the ultimate defender of his much vaunted 1,000-year Reich. Constructed in the utmost secrecy and at enormous cost, and dismissed by many as a ‘white elephant’, the ‘Great Wall of Germany’ very nearly lived up to the Fuhrer’s expectations, and is judged to have prolonged the war in Europe by six months. The Battle for the Siegfried Line was not only the most important of the 1944-45 campaign against Germany, it was to prove the key battle in the entire war in the west. It raged for six, long, bloody months along a front of 350 miles, and cost over a quarter of a million British, American, Canadian and French casualties.”
