Picture of Pointe du Hoc 155mm Gun

The Germans, after suffering bombardment before D-Day, moved the surviving 155mm guns from Pointe du Hoc and re-positioned them in a hedgerow south of this location. They erected dummy guns made from wooden poles to fool Allied aircraft. Rangers found and destroyed the actual guns, positioned to fire at Utah Beach, on the morning of D-Day. This recaptured gun is similar to the guns destroyed that day.
