Atlantic Wall

The Atlantic Wall was an extensive system of coastal fortifications built by the Third Reich during the Second World War in order to defend against invasion by the Allies during the Second World War.

It was not really a wall but series of artillery batteries, minefields and other works, which during 1942-1944 stretched from the French-Spanish border into Norway. A number of the bunkers are still present, for example near Scheveningen, The Hague, and in Normandy.
