War File: Battlefield - The West Wall
This one hour and forty minute program examines Hitler's so-called "The Siegfried Line," a series of fortifications running along Germany's Western frontier that went three-miles deep into the ground. Through archival footage and analysis, the show details how the Allies eventually breached the barrier in what would prove to be a decisive victory at the Battle of the West Wall, eventually crossing the Rhine river and assuring Germany's defeat.
