Country by country, Fortress Europe describe in detail every one of the fortifications built prior to and during World War II. The fortifications of smaller countries, like Belgium and the Netherlands, which added important segments to larger defensive lines, are covered with the same attention to detail as the more well-known fortifications. Much new information is available here on the defenses in Eastern Europe, as well. The descriptions and technical specifications of Europe's forts are supplemented by scores of remarkable technical drawings by Polish artist Robert M. Jurga.

The information provided on the fortifications, auxiliary structures, weapons, and related equipment, with illustrations, is very valuable.'--Journal of Military History."--Back cover."@en ;
