MILITARY SECRETS ARE THE MOST FLEETING

In spite of all the German fortifications along the Normandy coast and the millions of Reichmarks
to build, man and maintain those defenses, did
you know that allied agents stole the plans for the Atlantic Wall, the plans were ten (10) feet
long and two (2) feet wide!

Besides the plans, were positions for costal gun emplacements, ammo dumps, supply locations
command posts and other fortifications.

THE WEHRMACHT:

Strength in numbers...the Wehrmacht maintained
over a 150 divisions on the Eastern Front against the USSR, 6 in Finland, 12 in Norway, 6 in Denmark, 9 in Germany, 21 in the Balkans, 26 in Italy and 59 in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

Divisions weren't static, troops were moved to different fronts. The number of these divisions sounds very impressive, but statistics can be misleading most divisions were about 50% understrength, especially on the Eastern Front heavy fighting drained much of the Wehrmacht's manpower and materiel.
