Germany and the Axis powers!  📌Not political page! 📍Friday: MEGASTRUCTURES 📍1933 -> 1945

---MEGASTRUCTURES---
---SIEGFRIED LINE---
The original Siegfried Line was a First World War line of defensive forts and tank defences built by Germany in northern France during 1916–17 as a section of the Hindenburg Line. In English the term "Siegfried Line" commonly refers to the "Westwall", the German term for a similar Second World War-era defensive line built further east during the 1930s opposite the French Maginot Line. This line stretched more than 630 km (390 mi) and featured more than 18,000 bunkers, tunnels and tank traps. The network of defensive structures stretched from Kleve on the border with the Netherlands, along the western border of the old German Empire, to the town of Weil am Rhein on the border to Switzerland. It was planned in 1936 and built between 1938 and 1940.
From September 1944 to March 1945, the Siegfried Line was subject to a large scale Allied offensive, mainly American with over 100,000 soldiers. The overall cost of this Campaign in American personnel was close to 140,000. The German losses were not well documented.

---MEGASTRUCTURES---
---EAGLE NEST---
The Berghof was Adolf Hitler's home in the Obersalzberg of the Bavarian Alps near Berchtesgaden, Bavaria, Germany. Other than the Wolfsschanze ("Wolf's Lair"), his headquarters in East Prussia for the invasion of the Soviet Union, Hitler spent more time at the Berghof than anywhere else during World War II. It was also one of the most widely known of his headquarters, which were located throughout Europe.
Rebuilt, much expanded and renamed in 1935, the Berghof was Hitler's vacation residence for ten years. In late April 1945 the house was damaged by British aerial bombs, set on fire by retreating SS troops in early May, and looted after Allied troops reached the area. The Bavarian government demolished the burnt shell in 1952.

Volkswagen Type 82 Kübelwagen (literally, tub or bucket car) WH-1276387 'Feldgendarmerie' on the Eastern Front during' Opera­tion Cita­del', June 21, 1943.
In Janu­ary 1938 the Wehr­macht approached renowned designer Ferdi­nand Porsche of Volks­wagen Type 1 fame about designing an inex­pen­sive, light-weight, on- and off-road mili­tary trans­port vehicle, suggesting that his Volks­wagen Käfer (we know it today as the Beetle) could provide the basis for such a vehicle. Full-scale pro­duc­tion of the Kübel­wagen started in Febru­ary 1940. Between 1940 and 1945, 50,435 of these reli­able and dur­able vehicles with their air-cooled engines were pro­duced, including a Schwimm­wagen version.
