Fence

Does anyone know, how was named a fence whith at-mines and ap-mines, with barbed wire, which was placed in the El Alamein area by Rommel?

Teufel gardens or some such. Probably wrong though.

A picture from one of the Alamein PDF's released by the Italian army has them written as

Teufelsgarten
Giardino Diabilo(Yes, I double checked the spelling)
