|The site at Couville was nowhere as advanced as
Sottevast when the America Army reached this part of La Manche in late
June of 1944.
It has been argued that this site was merely a decoy to
draw bombers away from Sottevast, and it is difficult to get a true idea
as to the purpose of what is visible.
There are bomb craters everywhere and again I think USAF Marauders
must have been used to get bombs this close to the concrete structures.
The only plans available seem to show a large underground facility
with a wall a couple of meters high but nearly 150 meters long.
There is also a large concrete platform measuring 50 meters by 25
meters. This may of been the roof of what was to have been a large
underground bunker to house the V2
