The Atlantic Wall of the Third Reich is shown with brilliant original wartime color photos in this new Arndt Verlag title from Germany. With the German victory over France in 1940 and then later the 1941 invasion of Russia, the German Army was in a tough fight and could not afford to leave the Atlantik coast unguarded against a possible Allied invasion. To counter the this threat in the West, the 'Organization Todt' began construction of a mighty bulwark on the sea, from the Spanish border all the way up to the coast of Norway. To protect the German controlled empire in depth defense positions and huge bunkers were built to house the far-reaching heavy coastal guns, radar stations for detecting enemy bombers, and U-boat pens.
This book showcases an amazing collection of many never before seen color photos of architecture in France, Belgium, Holland and Denmark, which are not only present the details of the infamous Atlantic Wall defensive positions in Europe, but also insights into the everyday life of ordinary 'Landsers' (German Soldiers) while at his watch along the coast. One also sees photos of military commanders and political leaders during the inspection of individual works, such as armaments minister Albert Speer and Waffen-SS General 'Sepp' Dietrich. Detailed German text explains the development and architecture of the fortifications and how they held up under combat.

Hardback, 8.5" x 11.9", 160 pages, over 300 color and B+W  photos, German Text







About Us

J.J. Fedorowicz Publishing went into business in 1983 as Military Book Distributor, selling other companies’ books through the mail. Many of those books were in German, and so during the next few years a number of individuals commented on how it would be nice to see them in English. I investigated the costs and possibilities, and the first book was printed; 400 copies of a 40-page biography on Paul Hausser (how many of you own that one?). This was followed by European Volunteers, the first hard cover and first translation. And here we are now, almost 100 books later, and many more to go.

From the first day, the company’s objective was to provide translations of the very best German-language books covering the German ground forces in WW II and to publish them in a format that would last many years (hard cover, on acid-free paper, with laminated covers). It appears that we have been fairly successful.

Started as a one-man operation by John Fedorowicz, the company grew steadily until more help was needed. Over time, 3 partners came on board and we added Tiger Hobbies as a local outlet for modelers and book buyers. Eventually, as times and economic circumstances demanded, the company has returned to the original owner. However, Sharron, who came on board in 2002 as office manager, has stayed to keep me in line and on target. Ken helps with Tiger Hobbies. So here we are, John, Sharron and Ken - when you call you will get one of us.

Defying the hard economic situation, we plan to publish many more excellent books in the future and to serve your reading and modeling needs for many more years.
