Synopsis

February 1945. The war is over in Paris and eastern France. Still, in the West, entrenched in six fortresses built along the coast, the 90,000-strong German troops are ordered to keep fighting at all costs, even if it means destroying entire towns and sacrificing the lives of thousands of civilians.

It will take months to recapture these strategic locations from the enemy. Saint Nazaire, the last of them, was finally freed at the same time Berlin surrendered to the Red Army.
