The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - TV HIGHLIGHTS -

(na­tional Ge­o­graphic Chan­nel, astro Ch 553, 11pm) adolf Hitler had or­dered the con­struc­tion of this de­fen­sive line, a net­work of coastal for­ti­fi­ca­tions with ma­jor ports within its perime­ter, to shore up de­fences against the ex­pected al­lied invasion of Ger­man-oc­cu­pied europe. This mega project, stretch­ing thou­sands of kilo­me­tres from France in the south, right up to nor­way in the north, not only guz­zled up colos­sal amounts of money and ma­te­ri­als but also huge num­bers of peo­ple forced into labour. de­spite this, the at­lantic Wall was never com­pleted. Watch this to find out more about the ves­tiges of a struc­ture that once stood as a sym­bol of war­time, and Ger­many’s even­tual de­feat.
