France - Battery Longues sur Mer - 1

The bunkers and guns at Longues sur Mer are some of the very few German World War II bunker, that saw action during the D-day. They are also among the very few bunkers which still have some of their guns in position. The whole area gives a good example of how the Atlantic wall was constructed.
