    Pretty Ironic that the French couldn't defend themselves against the Germans and now they are re-building a German defense against the Allies.

    If the French restore anything like the English built their 1960's era metal working lathes, its all history with the arrival of one fourteen inch shell.
    Better they had trotted off to a place like Colleville sur Mer and got down momentarily on one knee or even uttered a barely audible prayer for the men buried there and the country that sent them to rescue them from their oppression.
