    Full titles read: "GERMANY'S WESTERN DEFENCES - THE SIEGFRIED LINE"

    C/U of map of Europe showing position of Siegfried Line. Various good shots of men at work building fortifications. M/S of two men digging as German guard walks past. Various good shots of the lines of concrete and steel anti-tank defences stretching across fields. Various shots, German troops marching into a block house on the line and of them going to their positions by train within the concrete fortifications. Various shots of the communications, power and arms supply systems within the fortification. M/S and C/U of gun barrels peering through the slits in the concrete walls.

    Cataloguer's note: Excellent story but unfortunately the soundtrack is missing.
