Reinforced concrete came more and more in use for the construction of fortifications in the early twentieth century. Forts, bunkers, casemates, gun emplacements etc. were all built using concrete and steel. In the works of the Atlantic Wall, West Wall, Maginot Line, Oder-Warthe-Bogen, Pommernstellung, East Wall, Grebbe defence line, Per-Albin-Line - but also in the Brialmont forts in Belgium, the Stelling van Amsterdam and the German panzerfesten. Fortress Books has a vast amount of books on all these bunker lines and defence lines. Not only new books, but also the second hand book, or even the antiquarian book you've always been looking for!
