Re: The Atlantic Sea wall......

Amazing! I did not know about this "Atlantic wall". I thought the Atlantic Wall was something the Nazis built along the mainland coast. So, I had to google it. And yes, the Atlantic wall was a defense wall against invasion, and it was actually also built in Norway and Denmark, that were occupied.

This wall in Surrey was, as far as I could find out, a training wall. For the allies to train how to overtake the Nazi wall e.g. in Germany or France. And it is only 100 meter long.

I do not know if building this wall was brilliant or just weird. If it really helped to win the war. But, a piece of history it is, nevertheless.
