Another one of my places you didn't want to be.
6 June, 1944; 0000; German coastal gun at Normandy
The aerial bombardment began around midnight with more than 2,200 British, Canadian, and American bombers attacking targets along the coast and further inland.
On sea, the Western Task Force included the battleships Arkansas, Nevada, and Texas, plus eight cruisers, 28 destroyers and one monitor. The Eastern Task Force included the battleships Ramillies and Warspite and the monitor Roberts, twelve cruisers, and thirty-seven destroyers.
Naval bombardment of areas behind the beach commenced at 05:45, while it was still dark, with the gunners switching to pre-assigned targets on the beach as soon as it was light enough to see, at 05:50.
This would be one of those pre-assigned targets.
