Pointe du Hoc

This new monument ready in place for D-day 2007, is close to the visitor centre and explains the Rangers assault on the cliffs. The monument cast in brass is very difficult to photograph. One of the panels shows the "Bigot" map that the Rangers had on DE-day, almost all the bunkers that were built on the cliffs are shown. The monument also has engraved upon it, the speech given by President Regan on D-day 1994.

The Fire Control Post has been closed since 2001, due to erosion. Work has been in progress since 2009 to stabilise the cliff face. This work has been funded buy the US and the monument is due to open on D-day 2011.
