The Atlantik Wall In Normandy

 

 

Wn 332 Denneville & Lindbergh Plage

There were German troops stationed in Denville Village and the beach area at Le Hotel Des Pins (pic 2). At Lindbergh Plage there was a newish hotel which the Germans partly demolished to house their troops. (pics 6 7 8) It was built as one building with three stories, but the Germans thought tat is would be an obvious target. If any fortifications were built here they have either been lost to the sea, also when the new road along the coast was constructed (route touristic) spoil from the new road was dumped here to help reconstruct the dunes. The beach was renamed in honour of Charles Lindbergh as it was claimed that people saw him cross the coast here. Later proved incorrect.
