    It's great to see that the Westwall is actually being preserved in places for historical reasons...When I was 17 (in '83), I spent the night camped out between the Dragon's Teeth outside of Monschau...thanks for bringing back some fine memories by sharing your photos! Cheers, Glenn

    Great pictures of snow covered dragons teeth! They were a simple but effective tank defence

    Superb photos, I didn't know as much of it was left. A different kind of scar of war through the countryside. If some pretentious sculptor had done that, these days it would be called 'Art'.

    Those dragon's teeth are on a steel-reinforced concrete foundation...neither cheap nor easy to demolish them...!
