The Maginot Line[edit]

The Maginot Line was a post-WW1 project to build a fortification system defending the eastern border of France towards Germany first, Italy second, and Luxembourg and Belgium third.

It can be argued having been a failure, as France was invaded, but still was considered as a major obstacle by the German High Command, who made a point of going around it.

Fascist Italiy, who (because of the Alps) did not have the option of going round, had to try taking the Line head-on and failed. Only the capitulation of France enabled their invasion of the South.

This is a list of the major fortifications, called ouvrages or works, in alphabetical order.
