Contest #793 – Dragon Teeth, Remnants of the Siegfried Line, Schmithof, Aaachen, Germany


Designed to both bog down tanks, and channel them into pre-defined “kill zones”, these fortifications were part of the “Westwall” or “Siegfried Line” defensive infrastructure of World War 2 Germany. While formidable looking, Dragon Teeth were pretty easily overcome by bulldozers covering them with dirt, allowing the tanks to roll right over them. General George Patton is famously said to have said about the entire Siegfried line “Fixed fortifications are monuments to man’s stupidity.”
