Pillboxes are the last vestige of the static defenses of World Wars I and II. People say new weapons make them worthless, but that isn’t entirely true. Every occupational force uses static forward bases. The Maginot Line was the greatest example of how static defenses can become targets and death traps. Today small redoubts with limited views are truly obsolete. Pillboxes festoon the beaches of France and England and tell a story about their bloody history.
