Synopsis

This book provides a concise and informative treatment of the Maginot Line, from North-East France down to the Alps. The Line was named after Andre Maginot, who advocated a series of fixed defences to counter the threat of German military resurgence, and to provide time for the French Army to mobilise in the event of any invasion. Construction of the Line began in 1929, and was largely complete by the outbreak of World War II. Packed with maps, plans and elevations, contemporary images and modern photographs, plus stunning artwork, it forms a detailed and informative visual treatment of this famous fortification system.

William Allcom has a long standing interest in forts and fortifications, and over the years has visited and photographed many sites. For several years he lived in Luxembourg and Germany, which afforded him the opportunity to extensively visit and explore the heart of the Maginot Line. William has acted as a consultant for several documentary television programs on fortification related topics, and has written several articles for the journal FORT. He currently lives in Southern California. Chris Taylor was born in Newcastle, UK, but now lives in London. After attending art college in his home town, he graduated in 1995 from Bournemouth University with a degree in computer graphics. Since then he has worked in the graphics industry and is currently a freelance illustrator for various publishing companies. He has a keen interest in filmmaking and is currently co-producing a movie.
