This interesting book by an author well familiar with the subject is recommended to those interested in 20th century fortifications.
Bolling Smith, Coast Defense Journal (March 2010)
This is the only book in English devoted to the Mannerheim Line, which also makes it the best. Some excellent drawings are included, but following up with the author's internet site is recommended.
JE Kaufmann, SiteO, siteo.net (January 2010)
This is all superbly illustrated by Brian Delf, giving us a look at how these forts developed and were sustained. Add in a fine collection of photographs of the extant sites as well as period photographs, and you have an excellent book on a subject that is both historically significant and fascinating to read. It is one I can highly recommend.
Scott Van Aken, Modeling Madness (November 2009)
