Beginning life at the end of World War I, the wall became a pet project of Adolf Hitlers, whose ascent to power saw building work accelerated, with plans for a grand, Maginot-style defence put in place.

But with a characteristically erratic change of heart, Hitler began to systematically strip the wall of its best defensive assets to bolster the Atlantic Wall, never dreaming that he would face an attack on two fronts. Despite belated and somewhat bungled reinforcements later in the War, the Eastern Wall would face a monstrous challenge as it became the Reichs last redoubt in the face of the mighty Soviet war machine. Neil Short brings his expert knowledge to bear with an analysis of different stages of the walls construction, the years of neglect and decay and the hasty, drastic redevelopment in the face of the looming Soviet threat.
