WWII Coastal Defenses of the U.S.!!! | History Traveler Episode 101


What if I told you that you didn’t have to travel to Normandy to see coastal defense structures? And that you could find similar structures right here in the U.S.? In this episode, we’re in exploring some of the defenses that were built along the coastline of Maine in the late 1800s and added to through WWII with the threat of German U-boats looming on the east coast. This is a piece of WWII history that you won’t hardly see anywhere else!
