Some of the defenses along the Dutch frontier in April 1940.
Note the pillbox to the left, and the barbed-wire entanglements
on the concrete wall. The original caption (optimistically) states
"Holland Defences Might Now Prove Too Formidable For Invader."
The photo is dated April 15, 1940 — less than a month later,
Germany had completely conquered Holland.
