The Merville Gun Battery was a coastal fortification in Normandy, France, in use as part of the Nazis’ Atlantic Wall built to defend continental Europe from Allied invasion. It was a particularly heavily fortified position and one of the first places to be attacked by Allied forces during the Normandy Landings commonly known as D-Day.
