Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I purchased this book along with 'Pas de Calais' and can only express disappointment with the purchase. There is considerable duplication across the two volumes and certainly not the content I had expected as regards the elements of the Atlantic Wall. The later seems somewhat thin. Presumably this is the disadvantage of not being able to see before one buys and having to rely on overviews and reviews.
For me personally, as I said, a rather disappointing purchase of some £23.

Informative Guide to Normandy Beach Defenses Then and Now! 19 Sep 2013
By Michael OConnor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Part of Pen & Sword's BATTLEGROUND series, Paul Williams' HITLER'S ATLANTIC WALL details the various beach defenses built by the Germans along Normandy's beaches and their ultimate fate. Part travelogue, part history, it's a wonderful, well-illustrated addition to the literature on D-Day.

After describing the origins of the 'Atlantic Wall,' Williams describes how various bunkers and fortifications were constructed, German officers and civilians who played important roles in that effort, the special tanks and other equipment developed by the Allies to breach the Wall, the battles that took place once the Allies landed, surviving fortifications in the area, etc.

The book is illustrated with an appealing mix of vintage and contemporary photographs, maps and diagrams.

In short, HITLER'S ATLANTIC WAR is a winning and informative guide to the Normandy fighting. Recommended.

History and Guide 29 Dec 2013
By Chris Sterling - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of two books on the Atlantic Wall by this author and in this same series (the other concerns the Pas de Calais region farther north), this small paperback encourages the reader to take it along while exploring what is left of the 1941-44 concrete structures along this portion of the French Coast. How (and why) the string of fortifications was built by the German occupation forces using thousands of often slave laborers makes for a fascinating story. So does the June 1944 tale of how the forts impacted the Allies' D-Day landings--and how the forts were overcome.

There are many books on the Atlantic Wall, though most are in French or German as might be expected. This one being in English is a plus, as is its small size as already noted. The author relates the rise and sudden fall of the Wall in Normandy well, with good use of photos, diagrams, and maps. Other books do a more in-depth job of defining the many standard types of bunker and armament employed.
