French Text

In the first part of this eagerly-awaited fourth volume, the authors in great detail study the fortifications built to face the Italian threat over the Alps. No stone is left unturned: development of the fortified south-eastern line, building the loftier fortifications, technical means and specific armament. The second part of Volume 4 exhaustively reviews the infantry and specific artillery which continuously from 1935 to 1940, held the south-eastern barrier.

The importance of the subject has led the publishers and the authors to bring out Volume 5 – coming shortly – for the saga to be complete without holding back on any information.


"A fine addition to Mary’s resume, and it gets added to our list of best works on the subject."
