Bloody Omaha II

In charge of the German Atlantic Wall was Field Marshall Edwin Rommel, the man General Patton copied. Rommel's plan was to stop the Allies on the beach and then drive them into the sea with Panzer reinforcements. In order to slow the attack, massive obstacles were to be placed along the French coastline. Below a view from a German stongpoint and the plaque describing what it is. Ironically, Rommel was away at the time of the invasion. Because of a forecast of bad weather and his wife's birthday, he was in Germany on the longest day.
