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 this book is an authoritative guide to them. The wall also
included the concrete U-boat and E-boat pens in the key ports,
and the Channel coast V-weapon sites. Co-authored by A.
Jankovic-Potocnik and Vladamir Tonic, this book will be
essential reading and reference for any one who is interested in

In December 1944 the Allies were
poised to smash the Siegfried Line and break into Germany.
Arnhem aside, there had been a long run of victories and
there was no intelligence to suggest a German
counter-offensive, so the major attack through the
mountainous Ardennes by massed Panzers and infantry took the
Allies totally by surprise. Fog and low cloud negated the
Allies' air supremacy, English-speaking German commandos in
captured jeeps created panic and withdrawal of U.S. forces
became a near rout. For ten days the situation worsened,
Antwerp was seriously threatened and 21st Army Group in
danger of being cut off. Clear skies for Allied air power
and counter-attacks by rapidly deployed reinforcements
turned the tide in the nick of time. All this is graphically
narrated in this fine study of a pivotal battle, that so
nearly changed the course of war.
