    Bunkers, foxholes and gun emplacements of reinforced concrete still remain more or less intact. Would today's advanced weapons obliterate them? It is frightening to contemplate but the many youngsters enjoyed their harmless explorations.

    The 11th Infantry Ranger Commandos at great cost of life took the Pointe from the Germans who were well entrenched here. A simple memorial states the bare particulars. This is a real battlefield. The cliff they scaled looks like an impossible feat but they did it.

    It is remarkable that as many as 135 of the 225 Rangers made it physically onto the plateau. The attack certainly protected a flank of the Omaha landing. Obviously this expanse provided no invasion are.

    Favorite thing: Here is the monument to those who lost their lives in the fight

    there are quite a few buildings you can enter and feel the atmosphere, but as the cliff edge is eroding you cannot enter this one

    Favorite thing: Pointe du Hoc was the site of a large battery in WW2, and was captured by the Rangers who had to scale cliffs to reach it during the D Day landings. It is very moving to see the craters and buildings still there
