Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Die Westfront ist nicht erstarrt; denn die deutsche Wehrmacht arbeitet Tag für Tag an der Verstärkung der Besestigungsanlagen. Hier wird z.B. in einen Berg am Oberrhein ein Stollen mit den modernsten Bohrmaschinen vorgetrieben."
Content: Title translates German picture caption
Content: This might be a posed picture because, in spite of the "modern drilling equipment", the soldier-miner has no helmet or eye protection.
