I agree with Angry Mexican - the Line worked well, as it forced the Germans to go North

That had several consequences;
1. Ironically, the terrain ther was better for Blitzkieg, provided the Germands could keep the momentum and not allow the Allies to create defensive positions based on the water obstacles.
2. It was a better route to Paris.

However, the Line was not impregnable.
Where the Germans did attack fortresses (Eban Emael) they were very, very efficient, but it was a deliberate and well rehersed operation that was (preperation) time intensive.
This type of attack is very vulnerable to defensive fire onto the Fort from other locations.
So, the Maginot Line could be attacked in the same way, but it would have had to been a near simultaneous attack on all the fortifications needed to clear a path through.
Otherwise the French could devise defensive fire plans that could be executed very quickly.

Just a few thoughts to see what others think

They did fought the fort and tried to take it, as you can see on the images below, they did not suceeded, only one of the forts of the Maginot Line actually fell. The others kept fighting even a few weeks after the surrender of France.
In fact the major purpose of the Maginot Line was not to entirely stop the Germans, but to at least win time in order to mobilise the population and troops needed to fight. The Maginot Line needed a small amount of troops to be fonctionable.

Listen to the guy whose name is currently Angry Mexicans. I feel if the french had the wall surrounding france like with China (They would be starved out but) they would have never been invaded with tanks the way they were. Paratroopers and bombings would be the only option, putting Germany in the same situation as they were in against the English. The problem is they didn't fight the fort. They went right around it, making it useless.

The Maginot Lines did not exist, while the Schlieffen plane occured in World War One. Only large, outdated forts.
