Lots of famous defensive lines were built up to and during WWII, like the Maginot Line or Atlantic Wall. China did the same for the Second Sino-Japanese war, two lines they built were part of the so-called “Chinese Hindenburg Line” – Wufu Line and the Xicheng Line – built before the war, and blocked the path from Shanghai to Nanking in anticipation of the eventual fall of Shanghai and defense of Nanking.

Were there any more defensive lines built prior to or during the war? If so which were they, and what did they defend against?
