Azeville Batterie

To the north of Utah Beach and part of the "iron triangle" this Batterie over the years has be developed and improved by the local government and since last September has one of its type 650 casemates painted in camouflage as it was during the occupation. In May 2009 a system of audio guides has been installed and it was inaugurated on the 26th of May. It is one of the best systems that I have seen with different options depending on your level of interest and is available in most European languages. The is also one for children, but that is only available in French at the moment. All we need now is a 105mm cannon to complete the most intact gun emplacement on the Atlantik Wall here in Normandy. If you have not already visited Azeville, I strongly urge you to do so, you will not be disappointed
