German West Wall
Remains of one of the 35 bunkers in Lambsborn. Lambsborn was designated as a defensive town and lay in the second echelon of the West Wall. The bunkers were built in 1936-1939. Hitler himself visited here in 1938 to inspect them. After the war, the French made sure most of the bunkers were dynamited into piles of concrete and rebar. A few still survive complete, but the heavy rains keep them mostly filled with water.
Backside of one of the more complete bunkers. With my metal detector, I have found US cartridge cases from 30-06 and 30 Carbine around this bunker. I also found a Nazi coin and a dog tag from one of the Polish POWs that the Germans used to dig connecting trenches along the military crests of the hills.

"Dragon's Teeth" in the Spring. There were two large belts of these tank obstacles connected by a flood area. Either route, tanks would get stuck. The hills overlooking were bristling with anti-tank guns.
