German battery of Longues sur Mer

Session disponibles

A major constituent of the Atlantic Wall, the Longues-sur-Mer artillery battery includes a firing command post and four casemates, each housing a 150mm artillery piece. Each casemate has various facilities for the transport of arms and for defending them.

Situated in the Normandy allied landing zone, at the top of a cliff overlooking the English Channel, the battery was subjected to intense aerial and naval bombardments preventing it from entering fully in action on 6 June 1944.

Located in the heart of the Allied assault zone, on the top of a cliff overlooking the English Channel, between the beaches of Omaha Beach and Gold Beach, the battery played a strategic role during the Allied Landings on the 6th of June 1944. The battery was subjected to intense aerial and naval bombardments preventing it from entering fully in action on 6 June 1944. It was taken the next day by the British troops.

Classified as a historical monument, it is in a good state of preservation.
