    They get invaded by the side that they didn't build it on. If they built it on the German border they get invaded by the Soviets. If they do it on the Russian border, the Germans invade. Poland had no chance.

    Wouldn't even be a speedbump.
    When the Germans invaded Belgium they just sent paratroopers to land behind or literally on top of fortifications and just smoked out of the defenders with flamethrowers before the army arrived

    Maybe Poland should have helped Ukraine in the 1917 to 1921 war against bolschewiks instead of stealing western Ukrainian lands.
    If they did helped they would have not been invaded by soviets and had more chances to win against Germany, hell maybe Ukrainian troops would have helped taking Berlin.
    But pooland was a hyena instead, taking chekoslovakian, Lithuanian and Ukrainian lands.

      >anti-bolshevik federation of Poland, Belarus, Lithuania and Ukraine

      Based. It was even considered as one of the possibilities just after the ww1 but not very favorable outcome of the polish-bolshevik war and growing political division in Poland ensured that it wouldn't be attempted however if successful it would have solved A LOT of problems in this region

      >taking czechoslovakian land

      Every PilsnerBlack person in Zaolzie should have been hanged after it was reclaimed so they'd never even think about trying similar shit ever again.

    The Maginot line was built along mountains, so almost all the troops could be concentrated in the plains, and Germany would be forced to invade a neutral buffer state before attacking France.
    Poland didn't have much natural frontiers to begin with, and what they had was along small countries. Slovakia and Hungary weren't worth a Maginot line.

    Poland turning their entire country into a concrete fortress wouldnt make the western allies come and help, either.
    >At the Nuremberg trials, German military commander Alfred Jodl said that "if we did not collapse already in the year 1939 that was due only to the fact that during the Polish campaign, the approximately 110 French and British divisions in the West were held completely inactive against the 23 German divisions."[18] General Siegfried Westphal stated that if the French had attacked in force in September 1939 the German army "could only have held out for one or two weeks."[19]

    Eastern border was plagued with roving bands of commies already and was completely unstable. Poland was fricked anyway.

    morons keep misunderstanding the point of the Maginot line. It was built JUST to funnel Germans into Belgium and thus fight the war away from French territory.
    It wasn't meant to be some impregnable force barrier or whatever. It was only a reasonable option due to the geography of the area and it did exactly what it was supposed to.
