German Battery of Longues-sur-Mer

Key element of the Atlantic Wall, the battery at Longues sur Mer included a range-finding post and four casemates, each housing a 150-mm gun.

 

It was built on a clifftop overlooking the English Channel. In the heart of the Allied assault sector, it played a strategic role during the Normandy Landings on June 6th 1944.

 

Despite numerous allied air raids in the night of 5th June 1944, the battery was still operational on the morning of 6th June. It was disabled later that day by bombardments from allied battle ships at sea. On 7th June, the battery surrendered to British soldiers from the Devonshire Regiment.
