The Atlantik Wall In Normandy



La Pallice

The 3rd Flotilla originally base in Kiel moved here in late 1941, the base is often referred to as La Rochelle which is a few kilometres to the east.

Work started here in 1941 and when it was finished 10 submarines could be moored here.  Until quite recently it was used by French amphibious forces as their base. It is now an area associated with the port and access is strictly forbidden.
