Eisenhower command was apparently favor Able tie French started serious work in 1954 restoring the line from Arlon on the belgian fron tier to pfc Rhine the sector from there to the Swiss Border got Les ser attention later you can still get an argument from French military tacticians and engineers about the value of the famed fortifications it Cost France about half a billion dollars to build a very big sum in pre world War ii Days the forts were carefully hidden in Hills and Woods there were hundreds of lesser positions artillery turrets Rose from conceal Mentlo fire then Sank Back into the ground one of the great weaknesses of course was that it left France Border with Belgium lightly de fended France once started to build More elaborate defences from Sedan to the Channel but Belgium protested this might be merely an invitation to Germany to violate belgian neutrality line ended near Sedan and when hitlers panzers started to move they simply swung around the end of the line above Sedan and on into France this move was aided by one of the great Allied blunders of the War Hie 9th French army of Gen Andre corp had been stationed to protect the Corner of France where he line ended but he moved North into Belgium to meet a German Force headed for Namur leaving Sedan to be covered by the belgian Chasseur Ardennis division the germans responded by throwing an entire corps at the lightly defended sector swept into Franco with Only Token opposition and in a few Days had reached the Channel at Abbeville it was a disaster which made the magi not line useless while still relatively untried finally the troops still there were ordered by the Vichy government to surrender despite the surrender however one group of frenchmen on for a month from a fort near Strasbourg in 1941 several Gor Man units did the same thing despite the fact that gun emplacements were pointed the wrong Way one nazi fort literally had to be starved into submission the germans Loo saw the value of the line for storage use and they also War manufacturing plants inside in world War if lays the two lop galleries were reserved for troops the third level for ready ammunition the fourth for com
