ABOUT THE BOOK ABOUT THE BOOK
PRAISE PRAISE
Synopsis

Synopsis

The Rhine River represented the last natural defensive barrier for the Third Reich in the fall of 1944. Although Hitler had been reluctant to allow the construction of tactical defense lines in France, the final defense of the Reich was another matter. As a result, construction of a Rhine defense line began in September 1944. Steven J Zaloga examines the multiple phases of construction undertaken to strengthen the Westwall (Siegfried Line), to fortify many of the border villages, and finally to prepare for the demolition of the Rhine bridges. Using detailed maps, color artwork, and expert analysis, this book takes a detailed look at Germany's last line of defense.
Praise

Praise

"This book illuminates [the Westwall's] extraordinary fortifications in a detailed and interesting text. The many photographs and color illustrations enrich and support the content. Whether you are a historian or modeler, Defense of the Rhine 1944-45 is an interesting book. With the amount of detailed research, clarity of delivery, and abundance of supporting illustrations, you will have a sound foundation to further, or enhance your knowledge of this chapter of World War Two." -Frederick Boucher, Armorama

"...this is an excellent book by one of Osprey's best authors, and it is recommended to those with any interest in World War Two in the ETO, or in land defenses in general." -Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal (May 2011)
