Pont Du Hoc

Pont du Hoc was the hardest place to take during D Day.  It also overlooked two beaches, so was necessary to take to succeed.  Needless to say, the Allies bombed it severely, but some bunkers were left.  A battalion of Army Rangers scaled the cliff below it to take it on that day.  There were very few left.  You can still see the bunkers and the scars there.  We went to Pont du Hoc on a chilly summer day last year.
