De nuestro recorrido por los escenarios del Dia-D lo que quizás más nos decepcionó fue Omaha Beach. No sé qué esperábamos ver, pero la verdad es que nos pareció muy insulso para lo que representó aquella playa para las fuerzas estadounidenses. Por contra, nos impactaron mucho tanto el cementerio alemán 🇩🇪 de La Cambe como el americano 🇺🇸 de Colleville-sur-mer. Los bunkers de la Pointe du Hoc y las baterías de Longues-sur-mer fueron una verdadera lección de historia recibida un situ.

. Pointe du Hoc . An ominous piece of land jutting into the English Channel, Pointe du Hoc provided an elevated vantage point from which huge German guns with a range of 25 km (15 miles) could deliver fire upon both Omaha Beach (7 km, or 4 miles, to the east) and Utah Beach (11 km, or 7 miles, to the west). Allied intelligence and photoreconnaissance had identified five 155-mm guns emplaced in reinforced-concrete casemates on the Pointe, and Allied commanders had determined that the neutralization of these guns was the key to the fate of the Omaha and Utah landings. The area of the Pointe was defended by elements of the German 352nd Infantry Division. . #super_france #hello_france #rebels_hdr #kings_hdr #fx_hdr #roadwarrior_hdr #everything_imaginable #heyihadtosnapthat #hdr_addiction #infinity_hdr #world_besthdr #picturetokeep_hdr  #raw_members #hdr_of_our_world #hdr_stronger  #club_hdr #best_expression_hdr #lucky_hdr #icu_france #france #topfrancephoto #topeuropephoto #igersfrance #visitfrance #normandie #insta_normandy #normandietourisme #normandy #stlphotographer #pointeduhoc

Pointe du Hoc was assigned to two hundred men of 2nd Ranger Battalion, commanded by Lieutenant Colonel James Rudder . Their task was to scale the 30 m cliffs with grappling hooks, ropes, and ladders to destroy the coastal gun battery located at the top . By dawn on D+1, Rudder had only 90 men able to fight. The Rangers casualties were 135 dead and wounded, while German casualties were 50 killed and 40 captured. An unknown number of French collaborators were executed . Pointe du Hoc is little changed from 1944, with the terrain covered with bomb craters and most of the concrete bunkers still in place #iamherefrance #dday #pointeduhoc #rangers #ww2 #war #winter #vacation #debarquement #6june1944 #operationoverlord #normandy

Discovery day 5/14. D-day invasion beaches Utah, Omaha, and Pointe du Hoc on the English Channel coast of France’s Normandy region. The weather set the mood. Foggy, damp, cold, still. We listened to Stephen Ambrose’s book, “D-Day : June 6, 1944: The Battle For The Normandy Beaches”, as we drove. As we passed through tiny villages I wondered about all the stories from inside homes and churches on that day and the days following. It was New Years Eve, and while museums and restaurants were all closed, we had everywhere we went essentially to ourselves. Utah beach reminded me so much of one of my favorite Lake Michigan beaches back home. If you’re from the West Michigan area, picture Rosy Mound after you descend the stairs. Low, grassy dunes separating the shore, scattered pine trees, soft yellow sand. Pont du Hoc was a dramatic landscape and I learned so much. I think, because it isn’t as “famous” as the other Dday landing sites, I honestly really didn’t know anything about it. Like, how 225 Army Rangers landed here, scaled the 100 foot cliffs to be the first to invade, and took the site from 200 German soldiers with heavy cost. Of the 225, 135 were killed or injured. Also, what a bomb crater looks like after 75+ years. The whole area atop the cliff is pocked with now grown over bomb craters (scroll for photo of husband and Max standing next to for scale). Omaha beach was surprising, because there are new homes lining the shore and as you drive along it really has a beachy vacation sort of vibe. So different than expected and I really wonder what it looked like in 1941. We stopped by the American cemetery and my husband got out and walked for a few minutes #photocred I stayed in the car #whoevenami and passed snacks back to two overtired, hangry little boys. It was raining by then and I opted out of my turn to take a peek. I paid my respects quietly as we explored the entire area that morning, thanking God and those men for the courage to stand up to evil. . . #normandy #utahbeach #pointeduhoc #omahabeach #normandyfrance #ww2history #historyappreciation #militaryappreciation #familytravel #euroroadtrip

|| NORMANDIE _ PLAGES DU DÉBARQUEMENT || —————————————————————————- Moi qui n’aimais pas du tout l’histoire à l’école, aujourd’hui j’adore. Je trouve ça fascinant de prendre conscience de tout ce qu’il s’est passé ici, il y a quelques années. Pour cet endroit là, c’était très particulier, c’est si beau et paisible que c’est difficile de se dire que tant d’atrocité ce sont passé ici... 😔 ————————————————————————— #normandie #2ndguerremondiale #debarquement #pointeduhoc #france

Nuestro viaje por el Norte de Francia también tuvo una etapa impactante y triste: las playas del Desembarco de Normandía, uno de los episodios más importantes de la #SegundaGuerraMundial. Allí me explicaron que el 6 de junio de 1944 (Día D) las tropas Aliadas llegaron a la costa para enfrentarse al ejército de Hitler. Gracias a esta gigantesca operación militar, 11 meses después Europa fue liberada del nazismo. Desafortunadamente, muchos dieron su vida para conseguirlo. En las fotos se pueden ver las baterías de Longues-sur-Mer con los cañones originales instalados por los nazis para defender la costa Atlántica. Tanto aquí como en las playas de Utah, Omaha, Arromanches y Juno pude pasear, pero no me permitieron el acceso en otros lugares emblemáticos de la #WWII como Pointe du Hoc, el cementerio Americano de Normandía o museos. El blanco y negro simboliza mi deseo de que este episodio tan oscuro permanezca en el pasado y no se repita nunca más. . . . #instadog #labrador #retriever #dogsFrance #pets #mascotas #gossos #perros #perrosbienvenidos #dogfriendly #dogfriendlyFrance #chiensFrance #chiensNormandie #perrosdeinstagram #dogsinboots #perrosconbotas #normandie #nortedefrancia #normandia #desembarcodenormandia #debarquementnormandie #diad #batterielonguessurmer #arromanches #pointeduhoc #playasdeldesembarco

Day 317 part 2 Off we went to Pointe du Hoc to learn about the Rangers who scaled the cliffs to take the battery. United States 2nd Ranger Battalion we’re assigned the task as the guns could cause significant losses on Omaha and Utah beach with its 12 mile range. Unknown to the Americans the guns had been moved a mile back from the battery before the invasion. Due to being pushed off course and then being 35 mins behind schedule, giving the Germans time to take up their posts again after the bombardments, the decision was to leave Lt.Col. Rudder and his troops alone and redirect resources to Omaha beach. When the Rangers made it to the top, 108 of the original 225 men remained. A few small groups then went to search for the missing 6 guns, 5 of them were found (the 6th was being repaired elsewhere) and destroyed using thermite grenades. The Rangers then had to battle during several counter attacks only being joined by 23 Rangers from the 5th from Omaha. By the time their relief arrived on 8th June only 90 men from 2nd Battalion were fit to fight. There are several bunkers still in tact which you can go into and high viewpoints to look at the mass of craters caused by artillery bombing. We then headed to Omaha beach or ‘Bloody Omaha’ due to the massive number of casualties. There’s an original Mulberry harbour used at Charlie sector of Omaha beach which (Mulberry A) which was beyond repair after a storm mid June 1944. More of Omaha to do tomorrow towards Juno.

La Pointe du Hoc, les blocs de béton armé de l entrée d un blockhaus du mur de l Atlantique ressemblent à ces vestiges des civilisations disparues des siècles passés. Comme pour les temples Mayas ou Aztèques, les bribes de leur architecture achèvent de devenir illisibles et fragmentées. #blockhaus #bunker #betabunker #normandie #normandietourisme #pointeduhoc #pointeduhocnormandy #pointeduhoccliffs #coldwar #pointeduhocfoundation #ranger #virilio #paulvirilio #bunkerarcheology #bunkerarcheologie #grandcampmaisy #wwiihistory #ruine #architecturephotography #archeologie #calvados #photographie

🇫🇷 This is one of my favorite dishes during one of many stops on my #lunchygoesabroad trip this summer: scallops, potatoes & a heavy cream 🤤 • A great meal after walking around these historical landmarks • D-Day tour via @linkparis took me to visit Omaha beach, Pointe du Hoc, Memorial de Caen & the American Cemetery at Colleville-sur-Mer • Being a HUGE history buff, I couldn’t pass the opportunity to tour on the 75th anniversary of these events. Where have you been that you absolutely LOVED the cuisine? • • • #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #foodies #foodiegram #france #caen #normandy #historygeek #eurotrip #linkparis #paris #dday #omahabeach #pointeduhoc #memorialdecaen #ddaytour #summer2019 #summer #aejeans #aexme #pr #publicrelations #publicist #socialmediamarketing #travel #womentravel #womenbloggers

Pointe du Hoc, Normandie, vue depuis le blockhaus sur la colline donnant sur La mer de la Manche, vers Port en Bessin. La pointe avancée sur la mer est parcourue de crevasses et de dénivelés indiquant l emplacement des bombes que la flotte américaine bombardait depuis le large pour couvrir les troupes de rangers se lançant à l’assaut de la falaise, au petit matin du 6 juin 44. Dans les sols,les munitions et les corps, les résidus chimiques et les métaux lourds poursuivent le lent travail de la désintégration. Des vitesses alternatives, celles de la mémoire ou de la Violence lente des paysages toxiques, scindent le territoire en une zone où l héritage de la Guerre Froide continue de s amalgamer au sol argileux de la pointe. #bunker #normandybunker #normandybeach #plagesnormandes #portenbessin #pointeduhoc #pointeduhocfoundation #grandcampmaisy #lamanche #calvados #bunker #blockhaus #atlanticwall #murdelatlantique #unescobunker #virilio #paulvirilio #bunkerresearch #bunkerresearchtour #betabunker

The view from the bunker, Grandcamp-Maisy, in a field by the cliff a few kilometres from the Pointe du Hoc, Normandy. It took 2 days for the American WWII troops to arrive in the little village of Grandcamp, after DDay landing and accessing the plateau. This isolated bunker is now a solitary entanglement collapse of concrete and metal, overground by shrubs and grass. #normandy #Dday #grandcampmaisy #pointeduhoc #normandie #virilio #bunkerarchitecture #blockhaus #calvados #betabunker
