Atlantik Wall – Man the defences!

The Germans’ first line of defence was the English Channel, guarded by the extensive Atlantic Wall, which Adolf Hitler ordered to be constructed in his Directive 51. The “wall” stretched from Norway to Spain in varying degrees, but was most elaborate in the sectors facing the English channel. Rommel had the wall fortified with pill boxes, artillery, machine gun positions and extensive barbed wire as well as laying hundreds of thousands of mines to deter landing craft.

This set (As seen here modeled by the Terrain Tutor) contains three bunkers with removable tops perfect for placing your troops inside.
