Point du Hoc, France

The view the Germans had when six thousand ships showed up on the horizon on the morning of D-Day. Point du Hoc lies between Omaha and Utah beaches and was taken by a relatively small number of rangers. As much as landing on the beaches must have been terrifying, being in the bunkers could not have been much less frightening.
