Notes
Content: Picture caption: "An der Atlantikküste wurden Wehrbauten errichtet, wie sie die Welt noch gesehen hat. Frontingenieure und Frontarbeiter der OT haben diese Werke geschaffen. Ein U-Bootbunker, der U-Boote völlig sicher schützt gegen Angriffe aus der Luft."
Content: Printed below caption: "PK.-Kriegsberichter Weinbach--(Scherl)"
Content: German U-boats could range far out into the Atlantic from their new bases on the coast of occupied France. These massive submarine pens of reinforced concrete could withstand direct hits by huge Allied bombs. Some survived the war and still exist today.
