German Bunker at Normandy

Normandy, France

Of all the D-day related sights in Normandy, I thought this was among the most memorable. This was an old German bunker that is still in place, and this is what the view looked like from inside. I don't suspect that is the original barbed wire from 75 years ago, but it still makes for a powerful scene. I imagined this same scene on the morning of June 6, 1944, but with the water filled with war ships. This was close to Pointe du Hoc.
