"... a clear and interesting work, in a field where too little of the source materials is in English. It is unreservedly recommended to anyone with an interest in World War 2 Coastal defense." -Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal (March 2010)
"Other recommendations for specialty military history collections include... Steven Zaloga's The Atlantic Wall (2), covering Belgium, the Netherlands, Denmark and Norway as it surveys Germany's ambitious Atlantic Wall program of World War II." -The Bookwatch (January 2010)
"Author Steven J. Zaloga takes us through the planning, design and implementation of these defenses while giving us a look at what it was like to live with these structures. The illustrations of Adam Hook allow us to have a look inside many of the different defenses and see how they were designed to work and complement each other. Thankfully, many of the massive and even smaller defense positions are still extant and the book has a considerable number of period and current photos of these sites. There is even a section on visiting these places, many of which are easily accessible and part of museums and memorials. In all a fascinating look at some of the more interesting defensive structures of WWII. A book that you are sure to enjoy." -Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness / www.modelingmadness.com (February 2010)
