"This valuable and eminently readable book fills an important historiographical niche, and deserves a place on the bookshelves of every student of the Second World War." -Andrew Hind, World at War
"This is the only relatively complete accounts in English of German operations against the Magniot Line and other defended sectors of the French northeastern front. The authors rely heavily on German sources concerning these operations presenting some details not seen in other accounts. There are a number of new photos not used in other books and a few of the special Osprey maps." -J.E. Kauffman, Site-O / siteo.net
"At their best, Osprey titles can be original works of research in their own right." -Mark Stille, Global War Studies
"...this book is a must-read for any student of WWII as well as toy soldier and model figure enthusiasts seeking inspirations for dioramas." - Toy Soldier & Model Figure
