A map of the Maginot Line in France

The Maginot Line was a long line of walls, forts, and armed defences that the French built after the First World War to keep any German army out of France. The plan was that the French army would have time to get ready and go north to Belgium and win any battle with the German army there. In the Second World War the German army and French army met in Belgium, but the French army lost.
