The fourth, I said, “Our war will be with Germany, and they will build a great big concrete place and fortify themselves in there, and the Americans will take a horrible beating.” Almighty God knows that Who I stand before now; I seen those independent Nazis kicking the Americans like that and things at that wall. And there’s many boys standing here now that was at that Siegfried Line that knows what it was. ~Rev. Branham The Seventieth Week of Daniel 1961

*43,132 buried next to Siegfried and Maginot line.
This number is very conservative as there were an additional 50-60,000 soldiers that were never accounted for. In a previous article based on battle casualties rather than cemeteries the number of deaths was as high as 100,000 in this area. This translates into 20-25% of all America’s WW2 losses occurring along this line of concrete fortifications between Belgium, France, and Germany.
