The Unknown Battle - Metz 1944
The battle of Metz in the autumn of 1944 was the last time in the history of modern warfare when supposedly out-dated fortresses, built nearly a half century earlier, were able to play a decisive role. Impervious to heavy artillery and air bombardment, they enabled a weak and die-hard German force to resist, and, for o time, stop powerful American forces who had sliced across France. It was also a battle of 'might-have-beens.'
