Pointe du Hoc



High quality map of Pointe du Hoc.
This map gives you a detailed overview of the guns positioned at Pointe du Hoc.

Pointe du Hoc is located on a cliff between Omaha Beach and Grandcamp-Maisy. The cliff is about 30 metres high, on the right side in front of the cliff is a small piece of pebble beach. The Germans built a large bunker complex with six casemates on this cliff and placed six captured French 155 mm guns there to defend the landing beaches. This location was perfect to defend both Omaha Beach and Utah Beach, as the guns had a range of 25 kilometres. Reason enough for the Allies to have this location in their hands before the invasion started.
