The Atlantik Wall In Normandy



WN 023 Chateau de Tailleville


With a great view over the beaches and also to the west of the very important radar and fighter guidance station at Douvres, just to the east. The Chateau was used as a HQ for the German forces in the area, the 11/736 Infantry Regiment and also the 8/736 Regiment. The Gestapo also had a presence here. The last photo has the original metal footholds from the occupation. There also many gun slits incorporated into the Chateau walls
