  Topic Description
Posted by: MTG Whilst I think a title on French turrets on the Maginot Line is an interesting title I would read I'm surprised it is an NVG title and not a fortress title? I know that NVG have covered artillery in the past but from memory these have been mobile. Whereas I would have thought a static system of defence in a fortification would suit the fortress series better. Osprey have previously said Fortress isn't dead or gone.

Hi. Fortress 10 covers the maginot line. I think the new book must be more specific requirements the firepower.

That's right, it's focusing on the details of the Maginot Line turrets themselves. As they're very sophisticated pieces of 'machinery of war', and there's also a fascinating back-story of how the French developed their artillery turrets, we thought the turrets deserved a New Vanguard of their own.
