  Bunker at Point du Hoc
by Voyageuse30
 
 

Here is where a group of Army Rangers scaled the cliffs and met heavy German resistance. The Americans defeated the Germans here, but not without suffering very heavy casualties.

You can walk through bunkers and underground shelters used by the Germans. There's still a lot of barbed wire around which gives this place a very authentic feel, even after all these years.

Address: 14450 Cricqueville en Bessin
Directions: About 8-10 miles west of the American Military Cemetery at Omaha Beach

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
