June 22: Craters at Pointe du Hoc

The craters are from the bombing attacks from the Allied forces. In addition to trying to clear out the Germans, the craters also gave the Allied soldiers protection. From these pictures you can see the difficulty the Allies encountered trying to climb up from the beach under heavy fire. It is amazing they were able to accomplish this mission!
