One of the real joys of touring Sword beach and the advance inland, is to visit the German 736 Regiment HQ , Oberst Krug’s command bunkers and defenses overlooking Sword beach. See the artillery ranges still painted on the observation post.
A great piece of history, for those cold winter days
A couple of great days bunker hunting with Benjamin Hebel, German history professor from Berlin, a real treat, Azville, Crisbecq, WN10, WN 9, longues sur mer.
Some old and new photos from Pointe de Varde.
