Most people who visit Normandy will pay a visit to the German gun batteries at Longues-sur-Mer or Point du Hoc, but there is a bunker complex in the Utah Beach sector that way more vast than either of those. Crisbecq Battery was a menace to the Utah Beach sector on D-Day and in the days after. It’s also where one of Niland brothers (from whom the Saving Private Ryan story is based on) was killed. In this episode, we’re exploring this vast complex and getting a better idea of what the German defenses looked like along the Atlantic Wall.
