Hillman Bunkers

Hillman Fortress is located on the hill above of Colleville-Montgomery, formerly known as Colleville-sur-Orne. Headquarters to the German 736th Regiment under the command of Oberst Krug, the Hillman Bunkers were an inland defence, part of the Atlantic wall overlooking the Beach.  This was the landing zone of the British 3rd Infantry Division under the codename Sword Beach.
