Named after the French minister of war from the time, the Maginot Line went down in history as the symbol of the French defeat of 1940. This long succession of underground fortresses, from Alsace to the Ardennes, did not keep the German troops at bay for long. Today, little remains of what was supposed to be an "impassable" border, but enthusiasts are making sure the Maginot Line is not forgotten.
